Seeing objects that were used by the men and women of the past gives us a different perspective - it adds another dimension to our knowledge of their world. Some items bring everyday lives closer. Others are so far away from our own experience, that we just wonder at them. They have a meaning, but we cannot relate to it.

In our series the Tudor & Stewart World in 100 Objects, we will be bringing together objects from across all aspects of the life of the period. They will be grouped within our themes of People, Place, Religion, Politics & Economy, Daily Life and Military & Warfare.
