‘What were the differences between the lives of rich and poor people in Tudor times?’
During the Tudor period, there was a clear divide between poor Tudors and rich Tudors.
The nobility were the wealthiest people and lived a life of luxury.
Henry VIII was very wealthy and he wasn’t shy about showing this off to the rest of the world. He had many palaces, lots of lavish clothes and pieces of jewellery.
The poor had to work hard for very little money and struggled to survive.
Many of the artefacts in the Tudor collection have been made for re-enactment groups which make them as authentic as possible.
