Investigating Childhood in Tudor and Victorian Times

Tudor children were treated as diminutive adults while Victorian adolescents were often regarded as infants. Investigating Childhood in Tudor and Victorian Times, published by the National Trust, explores these contrasts alongside the experiences and expectations of today.The book deals with palaces and cottages, the world of work and of school, wet nurses, arranged mariages and doll's houses. Photographs of portraits, domestic interiors and toys support the unpretentious text, aimed at pupils at key stages 2 and 3. Investigating Childhood in Tudor and Victorian Times by Laura Wilson, pound;3.99, is available from National Trust shops, by mail order on 01225 790800, and from the NT website
