Elizabeth I Primary Sources


Ruled: 1558-1603

Specific Events, People and Periods

British History Online, a wonderful collection of archives and primary sources, have collated some of their sources into specific topics to help researchers:-

The Ridolfi Plot

Sir Francis Drake

1587 Mary Queen of Scots

1588 Spanish Armada

Other Useful Stuff

One of my favourite historians, Dr John Guy, has an excellent website which is great for research and for students because he has essays for students plus transcripts of public lectures that he has done. See for details and in the top right hand corner you'll see the "History Menu".

    This website is everything I have been looking for and more. I’ve struggled to find primary sources as I am new to research, this website is perfect and I don’t know what I would have done without it. Thank you Clair and the Tudor Society Team.
