HARK! The Acoustic World of Elizabethan England (Battery Radio) - Part Two.

Four centuries ago... did people listen in a different way than we do now? How different were the sounds they heard? And can we tune into their auditory world?
We will investigate the acoustic world of Early Modern England. Tracking down some ancient sounds that still exist, and evoking others which have become extinct.
