Was Henry VIII Lancastrian? His Father Was a Beaufort, So What Did Henry Do? He Tried to Marry One, Then He Married Two.

Anne Boleyn has been pilloried for centuries for intentionally seducing poor Henry VIII, refusing to become his mistress...suppose we have all been wrong?

Henry VIII: Lover or Tyrant? Did He Love His Six Wives?

How did Henry VIII feel about the six women whose lives he shared? Was he a monster without feelings, or did he love his wives?

The exotic down and outs of Victorian London

These fascinating black and white pictures taken by photographer John Thompson show the reality of existence in the 1800s when photography was in its infancy. In 1876 he set out with writer Adolphe Smith and together the pair spoke to people and the shots were later published in magazine, Street Life in London. The pictures, now stored at the Bishopsgate Institute, capture the lives of street beggars, chimney sweeps, street doctors and market sellers among many others.
