Thank you to battlefield historian Julian Humphrys for this week’s Friday video, which is on a rebellion that took place in the reign of King Henry VII, the Cornish Rebellion.
Do remember that Julian is joining us in the Tudor Society chatroom later today to answer your questions on his expert talk on the Battle of Stoke Field…[Read More...]
While Mary Queen of Scots was marrying Lord Darnley in 1565 and Elizabeth's Privy Council was debating the antics of the Border Reivers, the forces of Christian Europe ( well some of them) were involved in a desperate struggle with the Ottomans on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The Great Siege, as it became known, is a fantastic story, and battlefield historian has actually recently been over in Malta and so was inspired to do a talk for us.
Here is a transcript of our live chat with historian Julian Humphrys. Julian spoke to us on Tudor Cambridge but seeing as he works with the Battlefields Trust it was also an ideal opportunity to get an update on the Bosworth Battlefield situation. It was an excellent live chat.

17 November: Informal live chat – Ladies-in-waiting[Read More...]
This month’s live chat is on Friday 17th November and the topic is ladies-in-waiting. With our informal chats, we don’t have an expert to ‘grill’, we just all bundle into the chatroom and have fun debating the topic for an hour. The moderator is just there to check that it runs smoothly, and to join the debate too. Feel free to share book recommendations on ladies-in-waiting in general, or particular ladies, to pose questions, to share your views on the role or on particular ladies, anything to do with ladies-in-waiting!
