The Tudors

Learning Objective:

To learn about Tudor exploration.

the tudor navy
The Tudor Navy
  • When Henry VIII came to power, England had only a small navy. During his reign Henry spent a great deal of money building up a large fleet to defend the kingdom.
  • Life at sea was risky and dangerous, but sailors could claim new land and bring back things like cotton, spices, silk and precious metals.
tudor ships
Tudor Ships
  • The ships used in Tudor times were called galleons. These were very large ocean ships. They had a special deck for cannons. They were broad, slow and not very easy to move

around.

life on board
Life On Board
  • Life on board a Tudor ship was very hard. The ships were dirty and often infested with mice.
  • The sailors had to sleep on deck and only had one set of clothes to wear.
  • Once on board, the sailors had to follow orders otherwise they were beaten!
life on board5
Life On Board
  • The main food on board was meat, salted to stop it going rotten, and hard dry biscuits. This was horrible to eat.
  • Due to the lack of fresh food, many sailors got a disease called scurvy.
  • In 20 years, around 10,000 sailors died of scurvy (More sailors were

killed by the food than

in sea battle!!!)

tudor explorers
Tudor Explorers
  • The Tudor period was a great age of exploration. Elizabeth I encouraged her sailors to search for new lands and treasures.
  • Most explorers wanted to get rich. They were looking for gold or valuable cargoes to bring back home to sell.
  • Others went to tell people in

distant lands about the Christian religion. These people were called missionaries.
