Speech In Shakespeare’s Day Video
Ben demonstrates a number of regional accents and suggests that Shakespeare’s Original Pronunciation was a mixture of these. He explains that words like ‘stars’ and ‘wars’ would have rhymed in Original Pronunciation. He recommends speaking quickly, getting rid of long vowel sounds in words like ‘bath’ and mimicking the accent of a pirate to help you sound like one of Shakespeare’s contemporaries.

A Tudor feast would consist of chicken, rabbit, pork, beef and lamb. A common way of cooking meat in Tudor times was on a spit over an open fire. As well as a spit many kitchens had charcoal burning stoves and special ovens for making bread. There were no electrical kitchen gadgets so everything had to be done by hand.
