Episode 132: Tubor Tombs with Dr. Kirsten Claiden-Yardley

Tudor tombs are some of the longest lasting pieces of art in England. Whether these tombs were made of bronze, stone or even wood, the history remains centuries later. Effigies on top of the tomb are, in some cases, the only image we have of an historical figure. But sadly, during the dissolution of the monasteries, many of these magnificent tombs were damaged or destroyed.

Who designed them, who created them, and who paid them! What are some of the symbols we find on tombs? Why did neither Arthur Tudor or Henry Fitzroy have an effigy on top of their tombs?
