Today Clare and I are in Australia, in a virtual sense, answering 20 questions from On The Tudor Trail’s Natalie Grueninger.
This is your seventh chance to win a copy of the book, so do pop over to On the Tudor Trail and follow Natalie’s instructions – click here. Thank you so much to Natalie for her support and coming up with such interesting questions. You also get to see a photo of my very messy desk!
There are only four more stops on our tour:
- Wednesday 4 June – The Tudor Cafe for a Q&A session.
- Thursday 5 June – TudorHistory.org, where we share our favourite primary sources.
- Friday 6 June – The Tudor Roses, where we share an extract from our book about George’s love of falconry.
- Saturday 7 June – Gareth Russell’s Confessions of a Ci-devant, where we look at George Boleyn’s scaffold speech.
Clare and I hope that you’re enjoying our tour.
