Medieval England
UNIT 12: Current Issues in Sport
Medieval Britain
Activities were…
Occasional, due to limited time and energy
Simple in nature and orally passed down through generations
Affected by prohibitions if considered unnecessary to the society by the ruling class
Functional first, particularly for hunting and defence
Participated in during feasts and festivals as outlets for pursuits
Mainly local in nature due to lack of mobility and frequent wars

The Tudors
England changed rapidly during this era; religious disputes of how the church should be run focused around the old Catholic ways and a 'purer' type of service - The Puritans.

Henry VIII = greater prosperity.

England was growing richer during the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

Traditional pastimes continued to develop.

People live din harsh conditions and held different attitudes regarding the treatment of animals to those of modern day.

There were distinct social class divisions in physical activities.
The Stuarts
James I of England issued a declaration - 'Book of Sports'.

In 1646, Oliver Cromwell was made Protector of Britain; he wished to establish a Parliament that was allied with the Puritan lifestyle.

Puritanism particularly objected to: a) Practising sport on Sunday; b) Inflicting cruelty on animals; c) Idleness, drinking and profanity associated with sport and public houses.

In 1660, Charles II returned as monarch.

Many previously popular activities were restored but never to their former glory.
Victorian Britain
Public Schools
The sons of the gentry were educated at large, prestigious, fee-paying boarding schools.

Children from middle class were rejected from these schools, so they built their own proprietary colleges.

The development of sport in the public school radically changed the previous concepts of sport.

Clarendon Report (1864) changed sport in schools by stressing the positive, educational features of team games as character building.
Twentieth Century
The British Empire was at its height; however the death of Queen Victoria resulted in dramatic social changes.

The working classes began to emerge as united force.

Transport was increasingly affordable.

Sport became part of the fabric of working class culture.

Spectator problems... Ibrox 1902; Hampden 1909.

Traditions that started early in the century are still recognised today.
Influence of War
First World War...

Learning Outcome 1: Know how sport has developed in the UK

What is going on this picture?
Pre-Industrial Britain: 18th Century
Social and cultural factors....
Life expectancy – 35 years

Illness and early death

Population was split into 2 groups – gentry/peasants

Holy days

Widespread illiteracy

Popular activities...

In small groups, research the given popular activity from pre-industrial Britain and find 5 facts relating to the history of that sport/activity
Modern Day: Post-Second World War

Farming became less important and people moved from rural areas to nearby towns and cities.

What impact do you think this would have had upon recreational pursuits?

Rules started to develop, as did sports clubs and governing bodies.

In the eighteenth century, the Methodists continued the Puritan work ethic.

The violence associated with many pastimes was believed to be the cause of social unrest.

At this time, employers required a more disciplined workforce in the mills.

The Cadbury Family...
The Industrial Revolution
(The Hanoverian Era - 1714 - 1790 launched industrial revolution)
Many of our well known football clubs can trace their history back to the 1800's.

Solve the anagrams to decipher the modern day clubs and indicate whether you think the club was founded higher or lower than the previous one.
