What was it actually like to live in Elizabethan England? If you could travel to the past and walk the streets of London in the 1590s, where would you stay? What would you eat? What would you wear? Would you really have a sense of it being a glorious age? And if so, how would that glory sit alongside the vagrants, diseases, violence, sexism and famine of the time?

Acclaimed historian Ian Mortimer reveals—in great detail—how the streets and homes of sixteenth century looked, sounded, and smelled for both peasants and for royals; what people wore and ate; how they were punished for crimes and treated for diseases; and the complex and contradictory Elizabethan attitudes toward violence, class, sex, and religion. Organized as a travel guide for the time-hopping tourist, The Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England is a book for Elizabethan enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
