LOTS of links this week! And I have two other draft posts on some other topics that I will be posting in the next few days.
* 1536 Act of Union is displayed for the first time ever – From 5 May 2011 to 27 July 2011, the 1536 ‘Act of Union’ between England and Wales will be on display at St Fagans: National History Museum, Cardiff.
* Leamington exhibition looks at Queen Elizabeth I favourite Robert Dudley – More information from the Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum including Exhibition information and Events
* Tickets are now on sale for the grand opening of Stirling Castle Presents – a Palace Fit for a Queen in June. I’ve linked to a lot of previous coverage of the work that has been done to restore the apartments at Stirling back to their appearance under James V and Marie de Guise and I really wish I could be there for the opening!
* The program for this year’s Peterborough Festival has been posted and will include several things of interest to Tudor history fans, including a talk by Dr. David Starkey at Peterborough Cathedral, burial place of Catherine of Aragon
* Anne of Cleves house to reopen in Sussex – Nice BBC video about the house, which had been temporarily closed to do restoration on its roof, which was in danger of collapse
* Dr. Stephan Edwards of Some Grey Matter alerted me to a new book collecting all of Katherine Parr’s writings, both works and letters. One of the claims in the book is that Katherine wrote, in her own hand, Lady Jane Grey’s prayerbook, which you can find more about here at his site. You can also find more about the Mueller’s book at The University of Chicago Press page for the title, and the Amazon pre-order link is below (US store link only right now).
