Anne Boleyn’s Books of Hours

Posted By on March 4, 2021

Thank you so much to my dear friend and co-author Dr Owen Emmmerson of Hever Castle for the reminder that today is World Book Day. It’s the perfect excuse for me to spend the rest of the day reading, don’t you think?

In celebration of World Book Day, I thought I’d share this video of a day in my life that I will never ever forget – the day that Hever Castle kindly allowed me to hold and view Anne Boleyn’s books of hours. It was so special and I was incredibly excited and moved. These were books that Anne would have used several times of day for prayer. They were special to her. A big thank you to Hever Castle, Alison Palmer and Owen for making my dream come true, and also Owen for answering my questions.

Here’s the video:
