    Bejewelled: The Use of Jewellery by Tudor Men with Natasha Awais-Dean

    In this episode, Sarah chats with Natasha Awais-Dean, an expert on male jewellery during the Tudor period and author of ‘Bejewelled: Men and Jewellery in Tudor and Jacobean England’.

Our roving news reporter comes directly from outside the abbey with all the latest gossip. (The link to the blog mentioned in the show on Wolsey's final journey to Leicester can be found here.)

    In the Footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots: Part 4: Edinburgh Castle with Donal Ferrie and an 'Audience with Marie Stuart'

    In the Footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots: Part 4: Edinburgh Castle with Donal Ferrie and an 'Audience with Marie Stuart'

    PART FOUR: Edinburgh Castle with Donal Ferrie and 'An Audience with Marie Stuart'
     
    This month sees the launch of a special celebration of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots, here, on The Tudor Travel Show. Throughout September, I will be publishing one episode a week, as I follow 'In the Footsteps' of this legendary Scottish queen, visiting some of the most historic locations associated with her time in Scotland. Along the way, I will be meeting up with local guides, (many are members of the Marie Stuart Society), who will share their knowledge and passion for Mary and her story.
     
    In this week's episode, I travel back to Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. In the first half of the episode, I visit the castle with our guide for today, Donal Ferrie. Join me as we get a private viewing of Mary's bed chamber and the closet in which she gave birth to her son, James. To see more images of the castle, join my private FB group, which accompanies this podcast, The Tudor Travel Show: Hitting the Road.
     
    In the second half of the show, I am granted a private audience with Marie Stuart herself. As a friendly English Ambassador, I put some challenging questions to the Scots queen. Tune in to hear her reflections on the dramatic events crashing through her life. It turned out to be an 'interesting' conversation!
