The Tudors: The Tudor period brought momentous changes to Britain. Prof. Roberts views excavations at Shakespeare's first theatre and at his home, finding clues about his frugality. She also uncovers the brutal realities of Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries in Wales, learns the rich history of a forgotten palace on the muddy banks of the Thames, and explores a shipwreck from this age of discovery.
