'The Lives of Tudor Women'. A talk by Dr Elizabeth Norton

'The Lives of Tudor Women'. A talk by Dr Elizabeth Norton

Saturday 7 March, 2pm - 3.30pm
  • On the eve of International Women's Day join us to learn more about women in the Tudor period.
  • The turbulent Tudor age never fails to capture the imagination. But what was it actually like to be a woman during this period? This was a time when death in infancy or during childbirth was rife; when marriage was usually a legal contract, not a matter for love, and the education of women was minimal at best. Yet the Tudor century was dominated by powerful and characterful women in a way that no era had been before. Join historian, Dr Elizabeth Norton, as she discusses the lives lived, or endured, by Tudor women from all levels of society.
