What life was like during the Elizabethan era depended upon yoursocial and financial status. If you had money and wealth, life wasgood. If you didn't, you had to work hard.
They had an accent something like that we associate with pirates. They did use some words we don't and they had slang terms of course which change from year to year (the slang of 1580 is no more incomprehensible than the slang of 1980--it has all passed out of the language). Reading plays like Thom…as Dekker's Shoemaker's Holiday or Jonson's Volpone probably give an impression of the way people actually spoke, unlike Marlowe and Shakespeare who intentionally heightened the dialogue, making it more poetic.

as most women were not put through education, they wouldn't have met many men. when they did, the woman were usually very young in their teens, and the men in their 20's. men would have to make their status higher to then catch a woman, hence why they're older than a female. rich girls and boys usua…lly met in balls or dinner parties. a girl would have to obey her father, who would usually demand who she marries, and no questions asked. some felt that their first love was their ONLY love and will never love anyone else. it was okay for a man to have an affair, but a disgrace for a woman to have an affair. marraige was a highstatus booster, so most girls got married young.. that's all i can provide ATM =] xx ( Full Answer )
The Elizabethan family life for men was one of power. The men made the decisions and the women were expected to obey them!

Before Elizabeth came to power, her half-sister, Mary Tudor (a.k.a. "Bloody Mary"), an ardent Catholic, ruled England. She, along with her husband, Phillip II of Spain, instituted numerous anti-Anglican policies which included executions and exiles. Once Elizabeth, an Anglican, came to power, she re…versed the anti-Anglian policies and began instituting certain taxes and such upon Catholics. However, she was more of a "politique" (meaning that she put her country before her religion), so there was less religious conflict during her time. ( Full Answer )
People did not live as long during that age as they do now. Marriages were usually arranged and it was always to a person of the same class or "station". Women were subservient to men. They were dependent on their male relatives to support them. Elizabethan woman were raised to believe that they wer…e inferior to men and that men knew better! Disobedience was seen as a crime against their religion. Marriages were frequently arranged so that both families involved would benefit. Marriages would be arranged to bring prestige or wealth to the family - a surprising fact is that young men were treated in a similar way as to women! Many couples would meet for the very first time on their wedding day! This particular Elizabethan custom usually applied to the nobility but the married or religious life were the only real options for the Elizabethans ( a career for a woman was absolutely unheard of!) Regardless of their social standing women and men were expected to marry. Single women who were thought to be witches by their neighbours... With parental permission the legal age for Elizabethan marriages was as follows: * it was legal for boys to marry at 14 * it was legal for girls to marry at the age of 12 It was not usual or traditional for marriages at such young ages. The actual age of consent was 21. Elizabethan men would generally not marry until this age. The Elizabethan women, once married, where used to have lots of children and babies, back then large families where normal, sometimes women arranged 'foster parents' just in case they died through child birth. Women were made to do all the housework and care and provide for the children. When a women was getting married she was supposed to bring wealth into the family and goods that her parents had given her. There was also a age limit of 27 for guys an girls was 25 so there was older people gettin married but at the same time there are yong. This is my own opion but i do believe that people getting married at a young age like 14 should be not aloud in the united states at all. ( Full Answer )

In 1558, physicians had no idea what caused the illnesses and diseases. One of the reasons many people got sick was lack of sanitation. There were open sewers in the streets. This kind of air was the perfect ground for rats, lice, fleas, viruses, diseases, and germs, all of which were common problem…s. Many people would dump all of their wastes and toxics in the River Thames, which was their only water source. Streets were filled with rotting garbage, and animals were allowed to defecate wherever they wanted. Most people ate pigs and cows, which were known to eat garbage. This led to the attack of the sewage mouse. Sewers were blocked and rivers were contaminated by domestic waste. They had no plumbing, so they would put their wastes in a bucket and throw it outside. The streets of cities and towns were had cesspools all over The Elizabethan townsfolk had horrible personal hygiene. They only showered one a month and wore the same unwashed clothes. The Elizabethan people only washed the inner clothes to save water. Many people didn't wash their hand frequently. As a result many germs got past around from person to person .Also the diet and what they ate caused many problems. The upper class consumed lots of red meat and very little fruits and vegetables; therefore they lack vitamins and minerals. Also they drank lots and lots of beer and wine, which cause liver problems. The lower classes skipped meals and were malnourished. During this time many explores came brought back lots of spices and wealth, they gave diseases like smallpox and syphilis, diseases that could be passed from person to person by physical contact or drinking or eating after someone.

goods were transported by post of ships to different countries across the world. =] Transport was coaches or carts onland and boats and ships on water, contrary to what has been said above, we did not transport goods from the UK it was a time of discovery across the world.

Yes, there were conflicts between Protestant and Catholics and conflicts between Reform Protestants and Anglicans. Queen Elizabeth restored the Church of England as independent from the Roman Catholic Church and helped negotiate conflicts between Protestant reformers who wanted to remove all non-Bi…blical teachings from the Anglican Church and traditionalists who liked Catholic inspired rituals and traditions.

The main reason people were killed in Elizabethan times was due to their religion. The 1559 religious settlement was mostly a protestant settlement, but at that time, the majority of England were Catholics. At first Elizabeth tried to push the Catholics slowly towards conformity, but there were radi…cals who followed Mary Queen of Scots (who was a Catholic) and wanted to remove Elizabeth from the throne. Plots developed that were against Elizabeth, for example, The Throckmorton Plot and rebellions such as The Northern Rebellion in 1569. The rebels were then executed, and many other Catholics followed suit later in the reign. So the main reason people were killed in Elizabethan times was for religious reasons and threats the the Queen's authority. ( Full Answer )
It was believed that when you open your mouth to sneeze, you give the devil a chance to enter your body and bring about spiritual harm. Saying "bless you" allegedly stops the devils from entering since they thought that no demon could stay in a place that a Christian has blessed.
In England, most Englishmen were either Anglican (a form ofProtestantism) or Roman Catholic. There were also other ProtestantChristian minority groups in England, but they were insignificant.Outside of England, there were innumerable other religions.

The Elizabethan period fell in the middle of what climatologists call the "Little Ice Age". Peasants (i.e. agricultural laborers) worked out doors in very cold weather most of the year and went home to drafty cottages. They tended to dress in layers (more layers than you'll probably choose to wear i…f you are making a costume). Over their shirts they wore "doublets"- fitted jackets made of wool, soft leather, heavy linnen or canvas (from hemp). In the most common style of doublet the body of it came to around waist level where a mid-thigh length skirt was stitched on. Upper class doublets sometimes had removable sleeves that laced to the body of the garment, lower class doublets might have had removable sleeves(there's a lot we don't know about what the lower 80% of society was wearing). Over this they wore "jerkins" which were basically identical to the doublets but they were larger/ looser fitting and sometimes didn't have sleeves. When they did have sleeves they tended to be wider so the doublet sleeves would fit comfortably underneath. If the jerkin had skirts they might be made from a piece of fabric longer than waist's circumference and pleated to fit the bodice. See- QUIP FOR AN UPSTART COURTIER in the links below (the guy on the right is the peasant, the one on the left is the upstart courtier). On their lower bodies Elizabethan peasants wore a wide range of coverings, but the most common would have been some sort of knickers buttoning below the knee (called "venetians"). These came in two predominant styles. There were fairly fitted ones a that were a bit full at the top where the excess was gathered into a waist band, that narrowed to fit below the knee where there was a small slit along the seam and a button to close it. There were baggy venetians cut like two big cylinders that also had the excess gathered into bands below the knee (also with a slit and a button or tie). On the lower half of the leg they would wear knit woolen hose or knee socks (try looking in camping and ski shops). Earlier in the century peasants were wearing long hose, the visual equivalent of slightly baggy tights, and a cod piece. Some peasants may still have been wearing these especially in the beginning of Elizabeth's reign. Their shirts were made of bleached or natural (beige-ish) linen (occasionally hemp canvas) and would not have been dyed as they contacted the skin and had to be washed occasionally with lye, ammonia or other bleaching agent. They weren't allowed certain colors by law (and expense) so they wore a lot of natural wool colors; faded black, gray and brown clothes. Less often they would have dyed outer clothes ( roughly 25% of garments were dyed by one estimate). Common dyed colors were blue (from the plant woad), red (madder root- usually giving rusty or brickish tones), green (woad blue dyed over various yellow dyes-probably medium to light green). None of these colors would have been dark, rich or bright. Check out the links to Bruegel the Elder's paintings of dutch peasants for a better idea about colors. Crafts men often wore a leather apron and were called "leather aprons". Generally there was a pair of slip on shoes or boots and a hat. knit and woven cloth caps were common, especially with craftsmen and other indoor workers. Peasants (who had to be out in the elements) were more often illustrated in broad brimmed hats of felt or woven straw. These tended to have rounded or near cylindrical crowns and might be decorated with a hat band of braided strips of colored cloth. At the beginning of the period trousers had no pockets so a belt purse was a necessity for every man and they came in a range of styles. Belts were worn around the waist, not the hips, over the jerkin and served only to help carry things (not to hold up the breeches, which were laced to the doublet instead). Commonly belts would be about an inch wide and made from leather with brass fittings. Workers in the field often carried food and other items in a "skrip" or shoulder bag (like what bike messengers use today). By the end of the period some venetian breaches had pockets worked into the side seam right below the waist band, but belts and pouches were still common. Peasants were not allowed to wear swords, but the might have pushed the definition of "knife" as far as they could. If you are serious about recreating authentic clothes (or just want to read about them) the book THE TUDOR TAILOR by Ninya Mikhaila and Jane Malcolm-Davies is great . the TUDOR COSTUME PAGE in the links below is also helpful (even if the men's costumes demonstrated seem more geared to indoor servants than peasants). If you want to make a costume and don't feel the need for rigorous authenticity (or effort) there are a few short cuts you can take. Instead of making a sleeved jerkin or doublet with a pleated skirt you could just make a long vest and belt it at the waist (giving about the same silhouette as a sleeveless jerkin). Baggy venetian breaches can be reasonably faked by taking an over-sized draw string pajamas pattern, cutting it off a bit below the knee and putting in casings and drawstrings. Muslin can be substituted for shirt linen and heavier cottons (such as duck cloth) for wool in jerkins and breaches- a good idea if the costume is going to be worn somewhere hot. If you choose to go with tights try to find some that are thick (opaque) and dull colored if possible. The shirt would usually be tucked into the hose and if you don't have a jerkin that covers your crotch you will want to fake some sort of cod piece and tack it into place. This could be a simple triangle of cloth or it could be a gloriously padded 3-D affair. Slip on "kung-fu" type shoes work as do some of the closed toe styles of Birkenstock. The costumers for "Shakespeare in Love" got away with dressing some of the lower class extras in those wool caps from Afghanistan that can sometimes be found in import shops. Craft, import shops, and thrift stores often have suitable straw hats. ( Full Answer )
Some would've had pets, but only the rich. Dogs were a well loved animal and families would often have a labrador or two. Queen Elizabeth I had a guinea pig as a pet, it is said.
Men wanted to be `impressive` and they displayed this by showingcourage, honour and respect to their partners.
Health and hygiene was quite bad in Elizabethan England. Times were hard - people only bathed once or twice a year! Even Queen Elizabeth didn't wash more than twice a year...maybe only once! They didn't have soap, and only rinsed dishes out with water, rather than our modern, much more hygienic habi…ts of using liquid soap. People washed so little because there was very little running water except from rivers or streams. People used wells; taps were non-existant, so gaining access to clean water was much more difficult then it is today. This lack of hygiene and living in a close community meant that illnesses spread like wildfire and were very hard to snuff out. People's 'cures' for diseases didn't help either; in fact they usually made illnesses worse...or killed the person altogether. An example of a disease is the plague (also known as the 'Black Death', although this was during the Medievil Period). Bubonic plague was the most common; people fell in in days and had black boils on their body. Hundreds of thousands of people died from the disease; thousands in London alone every day. Many people worked outside for a living; on farms or servants for the richer folk. In the country especially, the people lived in close partnership with their animals - which is also not very hygienic. So, in conclusion, the people in Elizabethan England were not very hygienic at all... I hope this helps Love beasle95 ( Full Answer )

Alas, no playbills survive from the Elizabethan era, but we do know these few facts: The right to print playbills was a monopoly, at one time held by William Jaggard, later printer of Shakespeare's First Folio. Playbills for tragedies were printed in red ink. Scholars believe that the playbills woul…d name the play and the performing company, and probably the lead actor, but not the playwright.

England was left in a lot of debt and was having problems with religion as the previous queen (Queen Mary) decided that Catholic would be the only religion in England. Elizabeth brought the country out of debt, did not require people to be Catholic, won the battle against the Spanish Armada, organis…ed the ships that voyaged off to find new land and played a large part in making England one of the most powerful countries in the world. It was also a golden reign because a lot of famous things happened in that time, like Shakespeare was born and wrote his plays. ( Full Answer )
