In the 1500s the Tudor court was the place to be seen. This series of talks looks into court life in the 16th century during the reign of King Henry VIII.   

In this talk historian Dr Alice Hunt examines 16th century coronations, how they responded to monarchical and religious changes of the time, and what they tell us about legitimacy, representation and the purpose of ceremony.

This talk was recorded live at the Tower of London in 2013.
