    Hi Claire, I just heard this audio (there is just so much on the tudor society site that I didn’t have time for it uptill now 😉 . I thought it very refreshing and I heard some things that I took for granted but which apparantly are not based on facts (p.e. trial confession Jane Boleyn). I always thought she was the mayor witness and that she brought them both down!! I didn’t study English history, so everything I ‘know’ is from books and – as you say in the interview- if it is written by a well respected historian you tend to believe it is true.

    Great interview, thank you! Do we need to be members of the Anne Boleyn Fellowship too to view the John Guy link? I cant access it.

      Thanks for spotting that, Dawn, I’ve just added a PDF of John Guy’s review so you can have a read of it.

    That was well worth the wait, thank you Claire. I have become increasingly frustrated with some dubious research and John Guy confirmed my concerns; he is an excellent historian.

      John Guy is meticulous with his research and is a lovely man too. He’s working on a book at the moment but is hoping to do something for the Tudor Society next summer when that’s finished.
