About Geanina

Good day, well met! 
My name is Geanina. I am an explorer and recreator of women's lives in 16th century England.


While in the 21st century I teach in a secondary school in London, much of my time is also spent in the 16th century, exploring Tudor homes. 

I am particularly fascinated by the domestic lives of the Tudor women and their wide array of skills. On this website you'll read about: how Tudor women made medicine and cosmetics in the stillroom, food preservation, kitchen gardens, health, diseases, diet and remedies, the way women dressed and how they made their clothes, Tudor crafts, social life, belief systems and superstitions.

Thanks for visiting,

Geanina :)
