1603 was once the 12 months that Queen Elizabeth I, the final of the Tudors, died. Her cousin, Robert Carey, instantly rode like a demon to Scotland to take the scoop to James VI. The cataclysmic time of the Stuart monarchy had come and the son of Mary Queen of Scots left Edinburgh for London to assert his throne as James I of britain.

Diaries and notes written in 1603 describe how a resurgence of the plague killed approximately 40,000 humans. monks blamed the sins of the folk for the pestilence, witches have been strangled and burned and plotters strung up on gate tops. yet no longer all was once gloom and violence. From a ship's log we examine of the 1st important cargoes of pepper coming back from the East Indies after the institution of a brand new spice direction; Shakespeare was once completing Othello and Ben Jonson wrote furiously to delight a country thirsting for leisure.

1603 was once the most vital and fascinating years in British heritage. In 1603: The dying of Queen Elizabeth I, the go back of the Black Plague, the increase of Shakespeare, Piracy, Witchcraft, and the beginning of the Stuart Era, Christopher Lee, acclaimed writer of This Sceptred Isle, unfolds its tale from first-hand bills and unique files to reflect the seminal yr within which Britain moved from Tudor medievalism in the direction of the wars, republicanism and regicide that lay ahead.
