Woodsmoke and Sage Summary

Woodsmoke and Sage: The Five Senses 1485-1603: How the Tudors Experienced the World by Amy Licence

Traditionally history is cerebral: what did they believe, what did they think, what did they know?

Woodsmoke and Sage is not a traditional book. Using the five senses, historian Amy Licence presents a new perspective on the material culture of the past, exploring the Tudors' relationship with the fabric of their existence, from the clothes on their backs, the roofs over their heads and the food on their tables, to the wider questions of how they interpreted and presented themselves, and what they believed about life, death and beyond.

Take a journey back 500 years and experience the sixteenth century the way it was lived, through sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.
