An entertaining, accessible guide to Elizabethan England--the latest in the Time Traveler's Guide series

Acclaimed historian Ian Mortimer shows readers that the past is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived. Using diaries, letters, books, and other writings of the day, Mortimer offers a masterful portrait of daily life in Elizabethan England, re-creating the sights, sounds, and customs of the sixteenth century from the perspective of both peasants and royals. Through this lens, we can begin to understand Queen Elizabeth's subjects not only as a people profoundly shaped by the time in which they lived, but also as the people who shaped the world we know and the people we are today.

Another fun entry in a very charming series that has an interesting premise as the reader as a time travelers. And of course as readers like time travelers we are outsiders. I considered myself pretty knowledgeable about English history but there were lots of details new to me.

Or, "how not to die in Elizabethan England". This was a very interesting and entertaining read which didn't sacrifice either for the other.

Learned so much more about Elizabethan England. A dense but pleasurable read if you are interested in this time line. Worth the effort.
