Tudor Folk Tales and Storytelling

In this #AtE, Steph is joined by author, historian, and storyteller extraordinaire – Dave Tonge. Dave shares some fun bits of history and even tells us a good tale. Trust me; it will blow your mind.

Dave is the author of Tudor Folk Tales:

In Tudor times, the ‘common sort’ were no different from us, laughing together, mocking each other, and sharing bawdy tales in tavern yards, marketplaces, and anywhere else that people came together. These stories were later collected in the cheap print of the period, and professional storyteller Dave Tonge has sought them out to assemble here. Within these pages hide smooth-talking tricksters, lusty knaves, wayward youths and stories of the eternal struggle to wear the breeches in the family, for a sometimes coarse but often comic telling of the everyday ups and downs in Tudor life.
