History - Elizabethans Workshops
The Reign of Queen Elizabeth I and the works of Shakespeare
Often referred to by historians as the Golden Era, the period of rule by Queen Elizabeth I, daughter of Herny VIII and Anne Boleyn, from 1558 until 1603. The Elizabethan era saw the height of the English Renaissance, expansion of the empire, and military dominance over Spain. For those teaching school history topics, the Elizabethans were a busy lot and kindly provided us with plenty to study.
The monarch at the time Queen Elizabeth ruled over a relatively quiet period, with fewer political and religious troubles. The arts flourished and saw the incredible rise of the theatre, and playwrights such as William Shakespeare who lived in Stratford upon Avon and was married to Anne Hathaway.
Other amazing turning points during the Elizabethan period include the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus, circumnavigation of the globe by Francis Drake and the first attempt to establish a settlement on the east coast of North America.
Elizabethan school trips provide a wonderful opportunity for children to study this period of British history. Visit historical houses, Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon and much more. If you need inspiration for an Elizabethan trip, take a look below or give us a call.
