How to be a Tudor

A Dawn-to-Dusk Guide to Everyday Life

«A deeply researched and endlessly fascinating account of what it was like to live as a Tudor. The narrative is rich in period detail and based upon a thorough review of the contemporary sources, but what makes it unique is the fact that Goodman has put it all into practice - sleeping, eating, washing and dressing like a Tudor. As a result, How To Be a Tudor is one of very few books which can justifiably claim to bring every aspect of this enduringly popular period dazzlingly to life.»

«Ruth is the queen of living history, long may she reign!»

Lucy Worsley

«Fascinating immersive history»

New York Times

«Leisure activities like dancing, gambling, and trips to the bear-baiting arena are brought to life by imaginative readings of primary sources... Common wisdom on everything from the healthiest sleeping position (on the right) to how to conceive a male child (by tying a ribbon around the left testicle) rounds out this engaging, erudite guide»

New Yorker

«Written with such passion . . . will fascinate and inform anyone who is interested in Victorian ways of life»

Dr Ian Mortimer, author of 'The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England' on 'How to Be a Victoria

«Her enthusiasm is exhilarating and contagious; her writing is clear and clean, sharply observant of tactile details and what they reveal about 16th-century life»

Boston Globe

«Wonderful, informative, startling . . . Goodman's unique selling proposition as a historian is that she walks the walk of her time period, even when that walk involves hard labor in a corset and a hoop skirt»

New York Times (on 'How to be a Victorian')

«Engagingly written and awash in the practicalities of life in the age, it presents a vivid, fascinating era of British history and reminds us that we're never as far from the past as we like to think»

Genevieve Valentine, NPR

«Immersive, engrossing»

Laura Miller, Slate

«If we ever have a female Doctor Who, I shall forward Ruth Goodman's name for consideration, not least because the historian has already done so much time travelling»

The Times

«Must-read!»

Daily Mail

«Always entertaining, and her narrative is often lifted by the fact that she has taken the trouble to experience many of the alien aspects of Tudor life ... This imbues the book with a palpable sense of the texture of our ancestors' day-to-day lives»

Observer

«Riveting. This is a real "people's history" that takes us straight into the sensate feelings of ordinary life -- the feel, touch, smells, and labour of people living five centuries ago, giving an earthy reality to our enduring fascination with the Tudors»

Juliet Gardiner

«Goodman's passion for her subject... comes across loud and clear»

Yorkshire Post

«Goodman's latest foray into immersive history is a revelation ... It's the next best thing to being there»

Sarah Ferguson, New York Times Book Review
