Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth is viewed as one of our greatest monarchs. She committed herself to her country, even ruling out marriage in favour of her subjects. It has been called a golden age.

Welcome to our GCSE series on Elizabethan England, 1558-1588, where we discuss this fascinating period and question whether or not it was as golden as first thought. The series is broken down into four areas, each area focused on one of the four key topics to be studied: accession, religion, challenges and society. Our series brings together Oxford historian and Tudor specialist Dr Glyn Redworth and Chris Eades, a history teacher at one of England's oldest schools, Harrow, which was established during our period, in 1572, by Royal Charter of Elizabeth herself.

The chapters in this series are as follow: Accession
The international situation
The domestic situation
Religion: the situation in 1558
Via Media
The Puritan challenge
The Catholic challenge and Mary Queen of Scots
The Spanish Armada
Exploration and voyages of discovery
Poverty and vagrancy
Education and leisure, part 1
Education and leisure, part 2
