Since I haven’t gotten around to a Sunday Short Takes for the last couple of weeks, here’s a midweek round-up:
* The Anne Boleyn Files has started a calendar competition for photos of Tudor places they will be producing in 2012. Check out the details here!
* And also at the Anne Boleyn Files, a nice write-up of a lecture by David Starkey on Acton Court, Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn – The Royal Progress of 1535, including information on how the property is still at risk even though it recently received Grade I status. There is a Facebook group to raise awareness.
* A neat video from the Dean of Westminster Abbey
* And finally a video overview of the renovations of Stirling Castle’s Renaissance Royal Palace that I’ve mentioned several times before on the blog.
