KS2/3 Medieval & Tudor Shrewsbury

What was it like to live in Shrewsbury in Medieval & Tudor times and how can we find out?

Shrewsbury is one of the best preserved Tudor towns in Britain, but what was it like to live here?

Through investigating portraits, handling artefacts, examining the famous ’Corbet’ four poster bed and trying on Tudor clothing, the children find out about the lives of the rich and the poor in Medieval & Tudor times.

In the afternoon, schools can choose to become building detectives and discover how Medieval & Tudor buildings were constructed using timber frames and wattle and daub or to visit Shropshire Archives to examine Medieval & Tudor documents.
