Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn: Clothing, Courtship, and Consequences

I love historical fashion. I love the Tudors. And, I love a good podcast. When these three things are combined into one, how can a girl not squeal a little?

I spent a good 45 or so minutes today enjoying this fascinating podcast from the National Archives on Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and how their fashion choices reflected the political climate at the Tudor court. It is well worth a listen!

Here's the link.

  1. I was sat in amongst the students listening to Dr Hayward give this talk :-) It was very interesting, and she is such a Lovely lady. We have emailed a few times :-) x

  2. That's great! I really enjoyed her presentation and wish there was a video of it! I'd love to see some of the things she referenced.
