One book in particular springs to mind: Working Women in English Society, 1300-1620, by Marjorie Keniston McIntosh. (Dr McIntosh was my PhD supervisor, and I assisted her with this book by seeking out and selecting the many illustrations, including the clever cover image.)Yes, a lot of research has been done in the area of workers of the sixteenth century. So much so that a lot of it will be found by keyword searches using particular occupations or sub-divisions, such as miners, textile workers, immigrant labourers, urban labourers, etc.
Thank you for responding, I'll definitely order the book. I've strruggled to find a book which covers the whole picture of the Tudor common people.
