March 2022 marks the 500th anniversary of Anne Boleyn's first recorded appearance at the English court. To celebrate, Hever Castle - Anne's childhood home - has staged an exhibition charting her early life, and exploring the factors that moulded her character.
In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Dr. Owen Emmerson and Kate McCaffrey about the exhibition and their new book, Becoming Anne: Connections, Culture, Court. The podcast also features a rendition of "Joyssance vous donneray" by Claudin de Sermisy, sung by Jay Britton.
