October 7, 2022 Incredible Details Of The Past: Bringing The Cowdray Murals Back To Life With Dominic Fontana

In this episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show, we travel back to one of England's greatest Tudor buildings: Cowdray House. As Part 2 of my podcasts from Cowdray House, I meet with Dominic Fonatana, academic geographer, and expert in the Cowdray murals. Destroyed by fire, Dominic brings the Cowdray murals back to life. We discuss the fine detail in the murals, commissioned to record key scenes in Henry VIII’s life. Tune in to discover what the murals tell us about the events of 1544-1547.
