Sunday Short Takes

We’re back! There were finally enough stories to put together a round-up this week!

* The Black Death and Tudor adventurers – The final History Extra podcast of 2013 featured James Evans, author of Merchant Adventurers: The Voyage that Launched Modern England

* Susan Bordo, author ofThe Creation of Anne Boleyn, discussed the Tudor queen on BBC Radio 4’s program “Woman’s Hour” and you can listen to that part of the show here (11 minutes).

* Wolf Hall: The changing faces of Thomas Cromwell – Tracy Borman discusses Cromwell for The Telegraph

* Sam Wanamaker Playhouse – The recreated Jacobean indoor theater next to The Globe in London (which I’ve linked to news on before) is now complete and open

And one final link for my follow needleworkers: I was looking through my latest issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework and saw they have a blackwork Tudor rose as one of the designs. And the cool thing is that they have the pattern as a free download on their website!
