Hever Castle: In Search of the Boleyn Family Home
In September's episode, The Tudor Travel Show travels to Hever Castle, in Kent. Sarah goes on a tour of the house with House Manager, Owen Emmerson, recreating the Tudor castle as it would have been in the sixteenth century when it was home to Anne Boleyn. If you wish to read a transcript of this podcast, which includes many pictures of the rooms, features and artefacts discussed in the show, you can access it here.
In the second half of the podcast, Sarah travels to Bradgate Park in Leicestershire, once the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey. She is in discussion with Richard Thomas, Professor of Archaeology and co-director of the Bradgate Park Field School, about the 5-year project to learn more about the site. Tune in to hear about how the current ruins at Bradgate hide the real truth about the original Tudor manor house.
Finally, The Tudor Travel Guide news desk returns, with all the latest September news from the sixteenth century. This time we travel to Sudeley Castle, in 1548, to hear an eyewitness account of the tragic demise of Katherine Parr following the birth of her first child.
