Yale University Press is offering two reading groups copies of the first book about the history of childhood in Tudor England.
In this beautifully illustrated and characteristically lively account, leading historian Nicholas Orme provides a rich survey of childhood in the period. Beginning with birth and infancy, he explores all aspects of children’s experiences, including the games they played, like Blind Man’s Bluff and Mumble-the-Peg, and the songs they sang, like ‘Three Blind Mice’ and ‘Jack Boy, Ho Boy’. He shows how social status determined everything from the food children ate and the clothes they wore to the education they received and the work they undertook.
To be in with a chance of winning 10 copies to read and review with your reading group please apply by 31 March.
