Most of us know him best from his wonderfully informative “A Time Traveler’s Guide” series, and today we are fortunate enough to have him on to answer YOUR questions on life from 1400-1700. The intent was to discuss inside the home, but as you’ll soon discover he will teach you much more!
We know that Edward IV had a rather large library of books. On this episode the wonderful Danie Burton joins us to discuss Edward IV’s introduction to printed books, when the printing press was brought to England, and the man who brought it.
Imagine a world where books had to be written by hand. While it guaranteed beautiful craftmanship it was not accessible to all. The printing press introduced a world to medieval England that many could not have imagined.
Here is a brief history on the life of Elizabeth Woodville, the queen consort of King Edward IV and daughter of Jacquetta of Luxembourg and Sir Richard Woodville. She had quite the turbulent life and as you’ll discover from this episode she was was an extraordinary woman.
The Wars of the Roses, or the Cousins Wars, were one of the most deadly and tumultuous times in English history, resulting in the death of many nobles. Today, Rachael Dickzen and I talk about some of the key players of the time: Henry VI, Edward IV, the Kingmaker, and Richard, Duke of York. We also discuss the women of the Wars of the Roses, including Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Margaret of Anjou. We take a look at the family tree of Edward III and how that affected history, and we also touch base on sanctuary and quick executions.
