BBC History Classic Stories; The life and times of The Stuarts


This special edition from BBC History Magazine focuses on the life and times of The Stuarts and the turbulent century that reshaped a nation.
This tumultuous era is explored in a special edition from the makers of BBC History Magazine. We reveal how the Stuarts secured their place on the throne following the death of Elizabeth I, only to be ousted by Oliver Cromwell before Charles II’s triumphant return.
The Life and Times of the Stuarts looks at key moments in British history such as the Gunpowder Plot, the witch trials and the Act of Union, and reveals the thrilling cast of characters who populate these stories.
Inside this collector’s edition you’ll discover what life was like during the Stuart period, from the impact of Puritanism to female rule-breakers and the perils of fashion faux pas.
