GAMES & SPORTS TOMMY&GLORIA&JOHN ELIZABETHAN ERA PROJECT Individual Sports Fencing Bear Bull Baiting Bear/bull baiting was one of the most popular sports during the Elizabethan
Era, people in all classes enjoyed this event. Even queen Elizabeth would
spend a pleasant afternoon on this violent sport consisting huge amount of
blood and thrillers. Bear baiting is basically a contest in which the well trained bulldogs attack the bull, who is 30 feet away and tied to a stake with an iron ring with a 15 feet long rope. Before the sport starts, the dog owners will hold on to their dog's ears until it starts and the Bull will be baited for an hour or so. Hawking Trainer catches

and trains it There is also bear baiting, but compared to bull baiting, it is very rare due to the cost and lack of bears. Robert Laneham once described a famous baiting which Queen Elizabeth attended as :
"... it was a sport very pleasant to see, to see the bear, with his pink eyes, tearing after his enemies approach; the nimbleness and wait of the dog to take his advantage and the force and experience of the bear again to avoid his assaults: if he were bitten in one place how he would pinch in another to get free; that if he were taken once, then by what shift with biting, with clawing, with roaring, with tossing and tumbling he would work and wind himself from them; and when he was loose to shake his ears twice or thrice with the blood and the slaver hanging about his physiognomy."

Those sports are also violent like the sports involving animals. Common men played football, but this kind of football is not the ancestry of American football. It received its name not because the ball was kicked but because all the players went on foot. It was extremely violent as there were few rules. Hurling, a combination of hockey and polo, had some players on foot, others on horseback. The object of the game was to strike a ball (with a stick or a club) so that it went over the opponents' goal. Country hurling might match the entire adult male populations of two villages, and the goals might be three or four miles apart. "Elizabethan Bear & Bull Baiting." Elizabethan Era.
