Blog round-up

Having some holiday time has allowed me to enjoy looking around at new history sites for me. Here are some of the new ones that have caught my eye.

Was thrilled to find this blog dedicated to Thomas Cromwell -

I'm a huge admirer of Thomas Cromwell's career and he is often portrayed in dramas as a sinister character - think Donald Pleasance in 'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' or his portrayal in 'Anne of 1,000 days'.

Likewise, my favourite Tudor king, Henry VII, is often over-looked in favour of his son, Henry VIII, so I was pleased to find this blog -

And a blog I've been reading for some time but haven't updated in my blog list -

I also want to congratulate Kathryn at

on getting her article published in English Historical Review. It's been a long time coming!

And now that the Duchesses have released Susan from their custody, I'm enjoying her revamped blog

Thank you for the mention! :-)

I haven't visited the Thomas Cromwell blog yet, but have seen the page on Facebook. :-) Hadn't seen the Henry VII one, so thanks for the link!

Apologies for not commenting earlier--I meant to and got caught up in something else. Thanks for the link!
