I would like to start a thread of interesting, but little known facts about the Tudor era.
I`ll start:According to the book; "Kings and Queens of England, A dark history" by Brenda Ralph Lewis, concerning the execution of Mary Queen of Scots......................She endured two strokes of the axe...........Her lips stirred up and down a quarter of an hour after her head was cut off. One of the executioners espied her little dog which had crept under her clothes....which could not be gotten forth with force, yet afterward would not depart from the dead corpse........but came and lay between her head and shoulders which were soaked with her blood.

Over the last few days, I have been arriving at the Wiki, and harping on endlessly about primary sources. I daresay I've annoyed a few people, and bored more than a few more half to death.
However, a friend sent me a link to a book review (that I think), perfectly illustrates the need to constantly back your arguments up with reliable, primary source evidence. If you don't, the nonsense will spiral completely out of control, and end up like this:

The following Yale course in 25 parts available on youtube was recommended on a Tudor conversations facebook group:
Early Modern England with Keith E. Wrightson
This course is intended to provide an up-to-date introduction to the development of English society between the late fifteenth and the early eighteenth centuries. Particular issues addressed in the lectures will include: the changing social structure; households; local communities; gender roles; economic development; urbanization; religious change from the Reformation to the Act of Toleration; the Tudor and Stuart monarchies; rebellion, popular protest and civil war; witchcraft; education, literacy and print culture; crime and the law; poverty and social welfare; the changing structures and dynamics of political participation and the emergence of parliamentary government.
