The 16th century was an age of change, not least from the culture of the medieval knight to that of the Renaissance courtier, with its profound implications for education and the arts. The Tudors still enjoyed hunting and martial sports, but they also read more, went to the theatre, enjoyed dancing and music and their church was being transformed by the Reformation. Alison Sim's book explores how these changes altered contemporary social life and leisure.
