I did mention this in a p.s. on a blog post a few days ago but I really wanted to draw attention to these new online resources.
I know that many of you have been frustrated by not being able to access the National Archives collection of documents from Henry VIII’s reign, particularly those pertaining to Anne Boleyn’s trial and execution, well, worry no more. You can now browse through reams of documents and primary sources at the British History Online website – thanks Oraya for telling me about it!
Click here to go to the main page for the Letters and Documents from Henry VIII’s reign. From that page, you can browse them by date or use the search box to find specific dates and events.
Just make sure that you also have a life – it’s very easy to get lost in these documents and spend whole days reading them. Don’t blame me if you go insane!!
P.S. Make sure you ready today’s blog post – “The Tale of Two Coronations”.
