Black Tudors: The Untold Story by Miranda Kaufmann
The untold stories of the Black Tudors (including, but not limited to, black seafarers) dazzlingly brought to life by Kaufmann, will transform how we see this most intriguing period of history.
A black porter publicly whips a white Englishman in the hall of a Gloucestershire manor house. A Moroccan woman is baptised in a London church. Henry VIII dispatches a Mauritanian diver to salvage lost treasures from the Mary Rose. From long-forgotten records emerge the remarkable stories of Africans who lived free in Tudor England…
They were present at some of the defining moments of the age. They were christened, married and buried by the Church. They were paid wages like any other Tudors.
Just one of our core collection of books on Trade, Empire & Migration here at the National Maritime Museum.
