Sunday Short Takes

Finally time for another round-up!

* The huge dig by The Deep revealing Hull’s Royal secrets – including King Henry VIII’s fortress – Warning – autoplay video (but otherwise very interesting!)

* 10 Minute Tudors: Leanda de Lisle – A new podcast from historian and author Leanda de Lisle (link goes to iTunes)

* Inside the Tudor court – A great post from the British Library’s Medieval Manuscripts blog featuring images from four recently digitized account books of Henry VII and Henry VIII (links to the manuscripts are at the bottom of the post)

* Elizabeth I, Anne Boleyn, and the Ashbourne Charter of 1585 – Nice discussion by Suzannah Lipscomb of the iconography in an Elizabethan charter and the few examples we have of Elizabeth I remembering her mother, Anne Boleyn.
