Leanda de Lisle had a couple of interesting articles out this past week:
* Anne Boleyn’s last secret – Why was the queen executed with a sword, rather than an axe?
* Don’t always blame the mothers – With the kitsch BBC drama The White Queen moving to its conclusion Margaret Beaufort is the villainess viewers love to hate.

Also from BBC History Magazine, the September 2013 issue has a cover article on the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden between England and Scotland.
* New Shakespearean Prose Found in Old Play – I couldn’t resist posting this since it is from my university!
