Apprenticeship Trivia

In Elizabethan England, the Apprenticeship system became more regulated via the 1563 Statute of Artificers, which set out terms and conditions for training (including a duration of seven years and the master/apprentice relationship). That Statute, which continued in force across England until 1813, also made it illegal to practice a craft unless one was a Master or Apprenticed to one.
