Skip to 0 minutes and 10 secondsWelcome to the six-week course on the Tudors from the University of Roehampton. In this course, we'll explore this pivotal, fascinating, and tumultuous period in English history. The course is made up of six weeks and a series of steps-- about 25 steps each week. A step might be a short article to read, a video like this one to watch, a timeline to look at, or a quiz. And look out for the themes. One of the themes is called Afterlives where we consider the representations of the Tudors in novels, in films, and in their cultural impact on our world today. And there's also key icons and key events where we explore the crucial people and incidents that made up the age.
