TRAVEL BACK IN TIME WITH THE BBC'S RUTH GOODMAN We know all about the dramas that played out in the Tudor court - most notably those of Henry VIII - but what was life really like for a commoner like you or me? To answer this question, the renowned "method historian" Ruth Goodman has slept, washed and cooked as the Tudors did - so you don't have to! She is your expert guide to this fascinating era, drawing on years of practical historical study to show how our ancestors coped with everyday life. Using a vast range of sources, she takes you back to when soot was used as toothpaste and the "upper crust" was served to the wealthier members of the house. Exploring how the Tudors learnt, danced and even stood according to the latest fashion, she reveals what it all felt, smelt and tasted like, from morning until night. If you enjoyed the writing of Hilary Mantel and Philippa Gregory, you will love discovering the true stories. ***** 'Ruth is the queen of living history, long may she reign!' Lucy Worsley 'A deeply researched and endlessly fascinating account of what it was like to live as a Tudor' Tracy Borman, author of Thomas Cromwell 'Always entertaining, and her narrative is often lifted by the fact that she has taken the trouble to experience many of the alien aspects of Tudor life' Observer 'Goodman's latest foray into immersive history is a revelation . . . It's the next best thing to being there' Sarah Ferguson, New York Times Book Review
