The Elizabethan Age lasted from 1558–1603. In this class, students will take a look at why some historians describe the Elizabethan Age as a ‘Golden Age’ and why there are some counterarguments to this description. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of scientific and cultural changes in this era and how these developments helped create the title ‘Golden Age’. This class is aimed at students in Years 9 - 11 who want an in-depth look to the Elizabethan Age.
