This book is a wonderful source for students and teachers studying the Elizabethan Age. Readers can `live' within the age as they encounter recipes, clothing patterns, songs and games. Students will enjoy browsing through the pages and learning how much money a knight would have made, how some of the homes were constructed, and what type of shoe a lady might have worn. A typical day is explained in detail, as is each month of the year.
This could serve as the core of an excellent cross-curricular unit for staff and students to produce together...Highly recommended. - The Book Report
“...Daily Life, the latest addition to the Greenwood Press Daily Life Through History series, accurately shows how the vast majority of people lived, ate, dwelled, what they did for a living, what they believed in, and how they spent their leisure time. This fine work does not neglect the upper classes; rather it relegates them to their appropriate place in a overall view of Elizabethan society.” –Renaissance Magazine
