'The People's Politics in Tudor England'. 

The Tudor period saw major changes to church and state in England, but how did ordinary people react? Did they have a say in the way England was governed? Or were they simply trampled under the feet of a tyrannical monarchy. This talk looks at how local history can help us see the great changes of the sixteenth century through the eyes of ordinary people, and put them back at the heart of the story of the Tudor age. Jonathan Healey
