Transcript

  • 1. The Tudors Learning Objective: To learn about Tudor exploration.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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!
  • 5. 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!!!)
