A. "The history of food and drink in England from the later medieval period to the early 20th century looking at changes in ingredients used and the way food was cooked and served. Paying particular attention to the largely self-sufficient country estate, we will also consider the costs involved in having the best and most elaborate food available for your guests." Costs £50, lasts 9 weeks and is 15 miles away from me. B. "A look at the ritual year in Tudor times and its associated traditions and customs. We ll explore the meaning and significance of these events to the peoples of the time and examine activities that are still the basis of seasonal celebrations today. A visit to a typical Tudor house is included (there may be an extra charge for the visit)." Costs £35, lasts 5 weeks and is 35 miles away from me. History is not my subject, this is just for sheer fun. I have an interest in Tudor history, but more court based. I can't do both, as I'm an NQT who won't get paid until the end of September. Both courses start in September.
