Doctor Ian Mortimer transports us back to Elizabethan England and reveals, in vivid detail, a living, breathing Tudor world. Learn how ordinary Tudor housewives turned plants into medicine, how the middle classes kept themselves clean using linen cloths, how the poor made pottage, how cooks of the rich devised recipes for new ingredients and how Tudors learned to read and write. This three part series makes history a place you can visit by using a combination of atmospheric locations, CGI, hyper real graphics and great storytelling. Plunging us 500 years back in time, we get to see, think and behave like an Elizabethan. This is not history as you know it!
