Simon Thurley, the leading historian of English Royal Palaces, speaks about his long awaited history of Tudor royal residences. His 30 years of archaeological excavation and documentary research unravels, for the first time, fact from fiction and reveals how architecture tells us more about the Tudor dynasty in public and private than we had previously thought.
