Health and Disease by Kathy Elgin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This excellent series provides a fascinating look at Tudor history through the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare. In Shakespeare's day, ancient and superstitious beliefs about health and illness were starting to be replaced by new scientific knowledge. Doctors were becoming more professional, and large hospitals were established. Despite this, people continued to suffer ill-health due to poor food and a lack of hygiene. Plague claimed many lives, and conditions such as mental illness were little understood.
