Rank #18: Episode 133: Travel in Tudor England

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we chat about how our Tudor friends traveled. There's this myth that people in medieval and early Modern England didn't travel - that they stayed in their one little area forever, and that was that. But actually, they had the travel bug, and from pilgrimages to jobs that included travel, there were plenty of opportunities to get out and see the world - or at least a piece of it.

Arthur Tudor was a Tudor prince who we often think of just in terms of his death. When we do talk about him in life, it's often about whether he consummated his marriage. But there was more to Arthur than that. And after having read a biography of him, I decided to do a complete episode on the boy whose shadow hung over much of the Tudor dynasty, and who helps give us a better understanding of the early Tudor dynasty.
