This searchable living history of Elizabethan England provides fascinating information about 16th century games, food, money, religion, fashion, and education. These individual glimpses combine to create a meaningful, non-political tapestry of life as lived 500 years ago. Add to a unit on Shakespeare or European history.

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of Elizabethan England. The site provides an array of knowledge about the life of the average citizen in that world, which could be used perfectly to recreate that life in your classroom! Divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Have them design a themed party that will sport games, food and fashion from Elizabethan times - all of the information can be found on the site!
