Box 12, 13a & 13b Tudor Mystery Box 1

These three boxes contain a selection of mystery objects representing life in Tudor Britain. Some objects will be easy for your class to identify whereas others are not so easy. This box can be used to discuss ideas such as who would have used the objects, whether they were rich or poor, and what similar objects do we have today.

Ideal for use with Key Stage 2, for a broader study post 1066.
