Are we the same as our ancestors, or are we completely different?

This is the question at the heart of this short multi-touch ebook of new and exclusive material to accompany The Time Traveller’s Guide to Elizabeth England, now a major BBC series. Historian Ian Mortimer takes us on an immersive journey through the five senses of the Elizabethan era – seeing, hearing, smell, taste, feeling - and the sixth: Fear.

Why can so few Elizabethans afford to wear bright red clothing? What are the loudest sounds you might hear in a world devoid of extremely loud noises? Why might you occasionally wash your mouth out with sulphuric acid? And how does it play on the lone traveller’s nerves to be walking under the constant threat of imminent attack on the highway?

Using a selection of unseen clips from the television series, rich imagery and a feast of contemporary music, The Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England: A Sensory Ride puts the reader onto the Elizabethan streets and shows that although we might have the same senses as our ancestors, how we experience sensation is another matter altogether.
