In this first episode of 2020, we are going Howard crazy here on The Tudor Travel Show! Sarah is in discussion with Nikki Clarke, Senior Lecturer in Medieval and Early Modern History at Chichester University about Kenninghall, in Norfolk, one of the principal country residences of the Dukes of Norfolk in the sixteenth-century. There is also a blog to accompany this part of the podcast, ‘Kenninghall: A Magnificent Tudor Time Capsule’, which can be read here.
In the second half of the podcast, Sarah travels south of Kenninghall to Framlingham in Suffolk, another Howard stronghold of the period. She goes in search of the incredibly fine sixteenth-century tombs of the 3rd Duke of Norfolk and other members of the Howard family. We learn about their history in the area and just who we think lies beneath the tombs from the local guide, Sandra Cartwright. The blog which accompanies this podcast can be read here. If you wish to buy a copy of my weekend guide to visiting some of the most interesting Tudor places in Suffolk, you can purchase a copy here.
Finally, The Tudor Travel Guide news desk returns with all the latest January news from the sixteenth century. This time, we time slip back to January 29 as our intrepid roving news reporter relates the events surrounding the burial of Katherine of Aragon at Peterborough Cathedral.
