In today's edition of Teasel's Tudor Trivia, Teasel and I debunk the myth that Tudor people were dirty and smelly, and that they did not care about hygiene. It's simply not true.

We share some sources for how Tudor people cared for their bodies and kept clean, and we'd highly recommend Ruth Goodman's work - Tudor Monastery Farm series and "How to be a Tudor" book.
