PRODUCT SUMMARY


What was it like to live during the Renaissance? Everyday Life in the Renaissance explores typical homes, diets and clothing during this period. Thanks to a surging economy and increased trade, many people had more money to spend on improved lifestyles, which included new household amenities, exotic foods and spices, and extravagant wardrobes. Witness the changing roles of work, education, religion, art and entertainment in family life over three centuries across Europe, and discover the realities of Renaissance city life. Part of the multivolume The Renaissance for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"...illuminates[s] historical, cultural, and social aspects of Renaissance life…Recommended…- Video Librarian (March/April 2004)

"...[a] well-produced interesting series...Technical quality is outstanding, with visuals that include European location footage, maps, reenactments (with narrated quotes from Renaissance figures), and still shots of Renaissance art and architecture. Audio is clear, with a background of period music...a very good choice for any library that needs curricular materials on this era."- School Library Journal (Jan 2004)

"These programs make good use of reenactments and art prints, and helpful captions list new vocabulary words. Thoughtfully organized with a modern twist."- Booklist (Jan 1 & 15, 2004)
