November's expert talk will be by historian Karen Bowman, author of Essex Girls and Essex Boys, who will be giving a talk entitled "Bonaire and Buxom in Bed and at Board", looking at the role of women in society with specific examples of Tudor women. I'm really looking forward to hearing Karen speak on this. I hope you enjoyed her magazine article on Richard Rich.
Karen is just finishing up on her latest book on the history of fashion, and that should be out in the Spring. I'll keep you updated.
Looking forward to this, I love hearing about the ‘every day life’ side of these times.
It brings back human side to them, which can be forgotten sometimes.
Karen’s new book sounds great too, historical costume is fascinating.
I agree with you Dawn and as for Richard Rich I would love to have an open chat about him, Was he really as bad as they said he was or do you think he just needed a hug ? 🙂
