Question from Chris - looking for examples for illustrations

I am a childrens artist looking for tudor period images to add to a collage I am helping a local school (in the UK) to make.

I am looking for examples of boar hunts and any feats/ mealtime images involving a roasted animal on a spit.

Any help would be great as all the children involved have asked me to include this animal and I would like to reproduce an image in line with depiction o fthe period.

Can anyone help?

Queen from Anna - Nationalism in Elizabeth's reign

How does Queen Elizabeth demonstrate nationalism during the renaissance?

Question from Stephanie on Elizabeth I

I love Elizabeth I and how she is an icon to us today and to look back onto the past at How they lived back then. Elizabeth I is a role model to me and to other Tudor fans out there I am sure she is to. I also love the other tudor rulers of that time period. Do you believe Elizabth I became pregnant during her teenage years or during her sister regime or her own regime?
