The last few weeks have been a lesson in “no matter how long you have to wait, keep following a story!”. The most recent example relates to a portrait of Elizabeth I that I first posted about nearly 5 years ago that is now going on display after authentication and conservation work.
In continuing Richard III news:
* Richard III follow-up documentary to air on More4 this month – This one sounds like it might have more of the science of the investigation in it.
And of course the Richard III discovery has prompted several calls for new digs to find other historical people. This one has some promise though –
And a couple of other interesting stories:
* Henry VII: Forgotten Welsh king? – (warning – embedded audio automatically plays)
* Portsmouth Mary Rose museum secures final £35,000 – Including a few £ from me!
