Thomas - a Tudor merchant

Explore how Thomas - a cloth merchant in the time of Queen Elizabeth I - lived and worked.

This resource has been devised as an aid to teaching the creative curriculum in a cross-curricular way. The Tudor period is well documented and offers a wealth of inspiration and opportunity for teaching across the curriculum. "Thomas - A Tudor Merchant", has been developed from original documents from 1587.  It is based on the will and inventory of Thomas Workman, a Gloucester merchant who died in 1587. This inventory is one of only sixty which survive in Gloucestershire for the Tudor period.

The resource is language-based and as such is a useful tool to support the development and teaching of literacy in the classroom.
