    One thought on “The Tudors in 100 objects”

    1. I took my time with this gem, savoring each entry.

Alliterative criticism at its finest. The photographs and text are just fan [...]

    2. An extraordinary collection of objects, many only recently excavated, showing a diverge range in Tudor life, on all points of the social spectrum. The items often showcase areas of the time period often overlooked, and all of it fascinating.
