For both visitors and residents in Berkshire and the Vale of the White Horse, this is a book full of fascinating historic episodes from the early Tudor period that happened right here in the Royal County, both old and new. The lifetime and reign of King Henry VIII was a constantly changing chapter of English history. Join David Nash Ford of berkshirehistory.com as he examines national and local events shaped by royal policies and witnessed by people from Slough to Faringdon and from Hungerford to Ascot. Details of some of these events were first published in a much smaller booklet sold at David's talks on the subject, but they have all been considerably expanded and are joined by many other Tudor incidents connected with Berkshire. The book is divided into sections so that you can choose whether to read it all together, or just pick the subject you want to know about. It is A5, contains 145 pages, is illustrated by 59 black and white images, has two appendices and a full index, and covers the following events:
