In this episode, Sarah chats with Natasha Awais-Dean, an expert on male jewellery during the Tudor period and author of ‘Bejewelled: Men and Jewellery in Tudor and Jacobean England’. We delve into the glittering world of sixteenth-century jewellery and find out how men across the social spectrum purchased, wore and made meaning from jewels.

 

We also head over to the TTTG news desk, which this month covers the dramatic news of the death of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey at Leicester Abbey on 29 November 1530. Our roving news reporter comes directly from outside the abbey with all the latest gossip. (The link to the blog mentioned in the show on Wolsey's final journey to Leicester can be found here.)
