If you thought that the Tudors' eating habits consisted mainly of riotous quaffing and hurling chicken legs over their shoulders, think again! This clearly-written overview of sixteenth-century attitudes to food and eating covers a vast range of topics, from kitchens and kitchen equipment, beer and brewing, table manners, feasts and luxury foods and wine. Sim also explores Tudor ideas about health and diet, revealing that they had explicit ideas about the effects of various foods on the body and the health-giving properties of certain ingredients.

How did the Tudors enjoy themselves? For the men and women of Tudor England there was, just as there is today, more to life than work. 400 years before the invention of television and radio, they did not lead boring or mundane lives. Indeed, in many ways the richness of Tudor entertainment shames us. While continuing the medieval tradition of tournament and pageantry, the Tudors also increasingly read and attended the theater. Dancing and music were also popular, and were considered just as important as hunting and fighting for an ambitious Tudor’s social skills. Church festivals provided the perfect excuse for revelry, and christenings and weddings were, as they are today, great social occasions. Here, Alison Sim explores the full range of entertainments enjoyed at that time covering everything from card games and bear baiting to interior design.

The political and military history of the sixteenth century is well known, and much written about, but what of the thousands of women who have, for the most part, eluded the historian's pen? 'The Tudor Housewife' aims to answer this question, providing a unique and accessible introduction to the everyday life and responsibilities of women from all levels of society in the age of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. With chapters on marriage, childbirth, the upbringing of children, washing and cleaning, food and drink, the housewife as doctor, women and business, and women and religion, Alison Sim reveals how women were expected to manage businesses as well as the household accounts, take extensive personal interest in the moral welfare of their children, administer medicine to their households and act as a helpmeet to their husbands in every aspect of life. This book unveils the powerful position of ordinary women in Tudor society and provides a captivating insight into their lives. Alison Sim is a freelance historian specialising in Tudor Housewifery skills. She has been featured on a number of Channel 4 history programmes, including Time Team, and has also written Pleasures and Pastimes in Tudor England for The History Press.
