    I’m still catching up with the archives, I’m in the middle of an older issue, but I’m definitely looking forward to this. Thanks! Michelle t

    I’m afraid that, having finally caught up with all the back issues of Tudor Life, I am disappointed because this issue had nothing in it about the recent ground-breaking research out of the Cabot Project at the University of Bristol, on the voyages of John and Sebastian Cabot, and their colleague, William Weston – voyages that were ongoing through 1509. It turns out that Cabot and the sailors of Bristol engaged in more extensive exploration than previously accounted for, which is a lot more than what usually gets taught about Cabot, who has been treated more like a passing footnote in Tudor history.

      Hi Doc,
      I’m so pleased that there has been new research into these fascinating explorers and that “history” can be corrected. With new research, there’s usually a grace period after news of it has broken for those concerned to discuss it in academic journals and to get feedback etc., and I think this news only broke in the autumn. I’ve spoken to Gareth, our editor, who is aware of the research, and he’s definitely planning on handling it in depth in a later issue. It’s exciting stuff!
      Thank you so much for your feedback and I’m so sorry that you’re disappointed.
