This episode is the first in a mini series on life in Tudor London, and today I give a brief intro to what life was like in the capital during the Tudor period, followed by an exploration of the most obvious landmark in the City - St Paul's Cathedral. But it's not the St Paul's we know - it was a gothic church, that was started 400 years before our Tudor friends lived there. The other thing that is important about life around St Paul's was the publishing and bookselling businesses that sprang up around the churchyard. It became a hub of books and pamphlets, and was the Elizabethan equivalent of Waterstones or Barnes and Noble.TudorFair.com for all your gift giving needs.Englandcast.com/Tudorcon2020 for Tudorcon infoEnglandcast.com/stpauls for show notesRemember, if you like this show, the number one way you can support it is by leaving a rating or review on iTunes, or wherever you are listening to this.
