Dr David Starkey - History & Things

Dr Starkey reconciles the objects from and the written history of the reign of Henry VIII.

For too long, history has been dominated by the written word. In fact, written evidence is only one of the myriad survivals of the past, and things – buildings, paintings, weapons, textiles and landscape itself – are just as important. Dr Starkey takes the example of Henry VIII and shows the extraordinary revision which happens when things are put back into the history of his reign.

The lecture will be introduced by David Sington, the multi-award winning filmmaker whose work has been shown in cinemas and on television around the world. He has directed the series, Henry VIII: Mind of a Tyrant, working closely with the presenter, Dr David Starkey, whom he has known for twenty years.
