Episode 082: Tudor Choniclers
So much of Tudor history is the convergence of new technologies and ideas that radically changed society as they were implemented. One example of that is the way the Tudors wrote their history. Not just the fact that more and more people were writing chronicles than ever before, but the way in which they were written. In this episode I look at a few famous chroniclers, and give the background to the way the chronicles were written.

Informal easy history at its best
We may want to debate some of the interpretation (our host is rather anti Ricardian, I think) but this is an easy and unhurried way to absorb well researched popular history.
