  • A hot meal if they were lucky
  • All fresh food was eaten at the beginning of the voyage because the sailors didn;t want it to be spoiled
  • after, it was hard ship's biscuits, salted meat, and of course fish

What disease did sailors often get in Tudor times and why?

Sailors in Tudor times often suffered from scurvy due to a lack of vitamin C in their diets during long sea voyages. Scurvy is a deficiency disease that can cause fatigue, joint pain, swollen gums, and even death if left untreated. This was common on ships as fresh fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin C were not readily available for long periods at sea.
