Lots of things this week!
* Historic milestone for 500-year-old wreck of Mary Rose warship – Scientists have stopped spraying the 500-year-old wreck of the Mary Rose with a protective wax for the first time in nearly two decades, an historic milestone in the conservation of Henry VIII’s Tudor warship.
* My poignant journey in search of the martyrs – Article by Nancy Bilyeau for the Catholic Herald on her research for The Crown and The Chalice
* ‘Evil May Day’: Re-examining the Race Riot of 1517 – Article from the History Today archives
* Lacey Baldwin Smith’s book about Anne Boleyn – Book review from Krya Cornelius Kramer
* Help Fund the World Premiere of The King’s Whore: The Anne Boleyn Story – An Indiegogo campaign to produce a play about Anne Boleyn in New York City.
* TannerRitchie’s Featured Series of the Month for May is the all 38 volumes of Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic from the reign of Henry VIII. You can get the whole batch for a lot less than buying each individually. It’s still not cheap, but a great resource!

* The Children of Henry VIII by John Guy – Podcast from the National Archives
* BBC2′s Tudor Court Season – These are some of the programs that I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, all gathered together in one convenient place.
