Kitchen pots can give a relatable sense of historical period when looking at the Tudors.
Ideal for a range of activities including comparing and contrasting these historical artefacts with their modern day equivalents, or why not add pots from other time period and see if your class can place them in chronological order?
Looking at who would have used the pots? Who would have made them? What they would be used for? Is not only great for historical enquiry but also gives a real sense of Tudor life.
