What was it like to grow up in Tudor England? How were children cared for, what did they play with, and which subjects were they taught?

In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Professor Nicholas Orme who, in his new book Tudor Children, provides a rich survey of childhood in the Tudor period from birth and infancy through to the education they received and the work they undertook.
