CHAOTIC OR DECADENT? WHAT WERE THE TUDORS TRULY LIKE AT A BANQUET?
This talk delves into the world of food and drink in the Tudor period, including proper table etiquette, social standing and socially acceptable drunkenness.
Why shouldn’t you put your elbows on the table?
Who had a better diet, the rich or the poor?
Why might rotten teeth get you a husband?
So if you would like to know the truth behind the lavish banquets of the royal family, or what an ordinary person would have eaten, then this talk is perfect for you.
