Sam Willis & James Daybell – BBC History Festival Winchester

Histories of the Unexpected: THE TUDORS LIVE

A talk based on their major book and chart-topping podcast, Histories of the Unexpected demonstrates how everything has a history, even the most unexpected of subjects, and how those subjects link together in unexpected ways. Sam Willis and James Daybell now bring their approach to the Tudor world, which is explored in exiting new ways through subjects like cannibalism, shrinking, bells, hats, mirrors, monsters, oranges, doors, faces, accidents, toilets, fire, lists, gifts, windows, chairs, bones, eyes, letter-writing and even fruit-eating!
