BMF Talk - Tracy Borman - Crown and Sceptre: 1000 Years of Kings and Queens

*A Bosworth Medieval Festival Ticket must be purchased to attend this talk*

Join Tracy for her enlightening talk on her latest publication ‘Crown and Sceptre: 1000 Years of Kings and Queens’ which explores the history and evolution of the monarchy from 1066 to the present day.

The British monarchy is the one of the most iconic and enduring institutions in the world. It has weathered the storms of rebellion, revolution and war that brought many of Europe’s royal families to an abrupt and bloody end. Its unique survival owes much to the fact that, for all its ancient traditions and protocol, the royal family has proved remarkably responsive to change, evolving to reflect the times. But for much of its history, it also spearheaded seismic change, shaping our religious, political and cultural identity and establishing the British monarchy as the envy of the world.

Within the next decade, there is likely to be a change of monarch, sparking renewed global interest on a scale not seen since Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953.

There will be an opportunity for  questions and book signings after the talk.

Tickets are £12 and can be purchased HERE
