The Tudors in Lincolnshire
During the Tudor period Lincolnshire was one of the most isolated counties in England. Henry VIII famously referred to its inhabitants as “the commons of one shire and that one of the most brute and beastly of the whole realm”.
Although the activities have been designed to be used at Key Stages 2 and 3 they will also be of interest to anyone who wants to find out a little more about what life was like in 16th century Lincolnshire, about the political, religious and social changes that were taking place at that time, and about how these national changes were played out at the local level.
These resources and activities have been produced by Heritage Lincolnshire working in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council’s Historic Environment team, and with the assistance of The Collection in Lincoln and Caistor Yarborough School. The project was funded by a Renaissance East Midlands MuBu grant and Lincolnshire County Council.Each resource consists of an interactive activity and supporting downloadable resources.
This activity can be used to generate and support classroom discussion about Henry VIII and the Reformation.
We have based our Tudor village on the present day Lincolnshire village of Thimbleby.
This activity is available either as a Magic Studio online activity or as a Powerpoint presentation version.
