Margaret Beaufort’s Lost Palace at Collyweston and the Glory of Tudor Tents

April 25, 2020

Last year, The Tudor Travel Show covered the archaeological excavations going on to locate the original position of the now lost palace of Collyweston, in Northamptonshire. In this month's episode, we revisit Collyweston, the Midlands home of Margaret Beaufort, to hear from Rachel Delman, Lecturer in History at York University, about how the palace appeared and was used by Margaret in its hey-day. There is an abbreviated transcript of this chat available on the blog.

 

In the second half of the episode, Sarah chats with Alden Gregory, Curator of Historic Buildings at Historic Royal Palaces about what turns out to be a fascinating subject: Tudor tents! Alden has been involved in the recreation of part of a royal, Tudor tent, due to be included in the 'Gold and Glory' exhibition at Hampton Court to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Field of Cloth of Gold. Learn about these mini-palaces and how they were used by the Tudor court.

(Please note that this was recorded just as lockdown was getting underway in the UK and so the exhibition has had to be delayed until later - hopefully!)

  

Finally, The Tudor Travel Guide news desk returns with all the latest April news from the sixteenth-century. On this occasion, our roving reporter is live at Greenwich Palace, where Anne Boleyn has just been presented as queen on East Eve, 12 April 1533.…

William Cecil, Theobalds and Elizabeth I: Power and Prestige in Elizabethan England

March 21, 2020

In March’s episode of the Tudor Travel Show, we focus on William Cecil Lord, Burghley in this, the 500th anniversary of his birth year. To kick-off, Sarah chats with Emily Cole of Historic England about one of William Cecil’s most ostentatious architectural projects that set a trend for house building in Elizabethan England: Theobalds in Hertfordshire.
