England - Periods - Tudor

THE TUDORS

The Tudor period is one of the more recogizable periods of English history with some of the most dynamic monarchs striding the stage of that memoriable landscape. Henry the VIII, Elizabeth I, Thomas Moore, and all of Henry's wives tend to overwhelm us with their stories and the drama of the age. This sometimes hids the other big stories of that age which was the development of Parliament and the entrenchment of the rule of law along with the angilizaton of the written and spoken word, the reformation, the production of english religious works and the shift of the economy.

These stoires are all apparent in the actions and lives of the Kings and Queens but all so through the religious leaders, the law makers, the phiilosophers, the explorers and of course the people.
