Entertainment in the 1500sThere were many forms of entertainment in the 1500s. For example, tennis. Tennis was played just like now except you could bounce it off the walls over the net. Executions held many a splender for the public eye. The criminal was hung, dismembered and then quartered.Entertainment in the 1500s by pardos66
Another form of entertainment was bearbaiting. In bearbaiting, the man would chain the bear to the ground and threw the dogs at it to see whether the dogs or the bear would survive the bearbaiting.
