Tudor and Stuart England saw the most dramatic shifts in thinking and innovation since the Romans.

It was a period that saw the emergence of Protestant churches, the increase in the power of parliament, the end of the feudal system, the development of empire, the union of Scotland and England and the emergence of some of the world's greatest scientists.Adam Hart-Davis illuminates the innovations of the period and shows how these Tudor and Stuart advancements have changed our world.

Featuring demonstrations of Tudor and Stuart devices, Adam attempts to reconstruct a Tudor printing press, the first flushing toilet and to demonstrate the first stagecoach suspension, amongst many others.
