2: Achievements | Shakespeare's plays were written into books, and after the printing press was made, he was able to write even more in a short amount of time, because now it was easier to make his books.

3: In Elizabethan England, many achievements occurred. a couple of examples are that doctors were using different kinds of treatments for curing patients; like using lily root and dried toad. Another is that the printing press was invented, which allowed more books to be made.

4: >Ireland near them- where protestants live >Scotland surrounded them >England = most populated area >Thanes river | GEOGRAPHY

5: * Everything was walking distance * People traveled by horse * The fastest way of travel was by boats; water surrounded them.

6: RELIGION | Two major religions existed: being Catholic, and being Protestant. It was so strong that it led to executions of many adherents to both religions. Both religions believed in witches and witchcraft, and performed witch hunts. Believing in witches gave an explanation the unexplainable for the people. They did witch trials, and had cruel punishments for them.

7: People Considered Witches: - Women -Old women -Poor women - Unprotected women - Single women or - Widows

9: POLITICS | Shakespeare was very aware of dabbling in politics. His plays were censored. Shakespeare also knew that in England, being Catholic was not approved of- the queen was constantly in fear of Catholic plots. He'd known people who had been arrested and tortued; because the laws were very strict.

10: The Economy was ok in Elizabethan England. On one hand, Education kept increasing, and places like Oxford and Cambridge University came to be. Jobs like being a blacksmith, a baker, or a basket maker were allowing Elizabethan England to advance and create new things. There was architecture, miniature portraits being made, and woolen types of clothes being worn. But, on the other hand, Elizabethan England had its imperfections. Because there were no fire fighters, or any official crime stoppers, robberies and violence constantly happened. There was a population of 200,000. People who traded went to Antwerp, the trade center. | Economy

12: SOCIETY | In society, the amount of poor people outnumbered the amount of rich. The poor were divided into 3 categories: the "Deserving Poor", the "Deserving Unemployed" and the "Undeserving Poor". A series of laws were introduced by the English Parliament in 1563, 1572, and 1597. The people came up with the supremacy law in 1574. Fines, loss of property, and life was taken away if anyone broke the supremacy laws. The statue of Apparel was used to control behavior and ensure specific class structure maintained in England.
