Barney Harwood presents a comic guide to work and play in Tudor England.
Among the themes that Barney touches on are: unusual jobs (like that of a 'whipping boy'); a life at sea; rurual unemployment and vagrancy; early attempts towards inventing the game of football. As Barney concludes, work was always hard...but play was sometimes even harder!
