In this week's Claire Chats video I look at some of the diseases and conditions which made people living in the Tudor era ill or even killed them.
In the video I mention my video on Sweating Sickness, so here it is for you to enjoy:
A book which covers sweating sickness, the Black Assizes, leprosy, Plague and various other medieval and Tudor diseases and their outbreaks is Charles Creighton's A History of Epidemics in Britain - see https://archive.org/details/historyofepidemi01crei
Can’t play any videos!
Hi Christine, I’ve sent you an email with some suggestions.
Both videos are wonderful!
Meoooow!! could hear those pussy cats, lol.
I lived about 30mile from Sheffield Manor that you mentioned, it was the first historical place my hubby took me when we first met, aaah!! on a motorbike in winter!! was so much hardier in those days, 🙂 he was born a few miles from there so knew it well. There weren’t any tour guides as then, very basic information too. So I didn’t know about Wolsey’s ‘garder-throne’ Lol. Poor bloke awful disease.
Loved that chat Claire…..cuppa tea?
