The Tudors are like us, yet unlike us, familiar but strange. Using an extensive range of examples and visual sources, we will attempt to capture some of the essence of Tudor society, from Hardwick Hall (‘more glass than wall’) to the humble cottage of the ploughman; from the feasts of the rich to the coarse (and occasionally hallucinatory) bread of the poor; from exploding chimneys and tavern brawls to the ‘delights’ of bear baiting and Shakespearean theatre in lawless Southwark.
