Looks at life in 16th-century England through the eyes of John Stow, born in London in 1525. Stow wrote extensively on his times, leaving a legacy of information on Tudor England, attitudes, and the Tudor view of English history. This study draws on his work to reconstruct the popular perception of current affairs and history, touching on society, politics, religious upheaval, and overseas expansion.
