  • The Elizabethan era was during the reign of Elizabeth I, and life in this time depended on your status and location; the rich and royal lived luxuriously while the poor were subjected to menial jobs to survive. Life was busiest during harvest seasons and hay making periods. Women were subservient to men and had to endure arranged marriages.Diseases ran rampant among the peasents.
geography and economy
Geography and Economy
  • England comprises most of the central and southern two-thirds of the island of Great Britain. Much of England consists of rolling hills, but it is generally more mountainous in the north with a chain of mountains. England has a temperate climate with plentiful rainfall all year round. The seasons are quite variable in temperature, however temperatures rarely fall below −5 °C (23 °F) or rise above 30 °C (86 °F). The prevailing wind is from the south-west, bringing mild and wet weather to England regularly from the Atlantic Ocean.

At the time Elizabeth inherited the throne of England, the English treasury had virtually no money, mostly because of the cost of financing the wars of Phillip II. The most important commodity in the English economy was woollencloth.Elizabeth had a major hand in the English economy. To the detriment of England, she largely increased the number of monopolies .
