Great Fires and Recovered Ships
Introduction from Philippa
We are going through a heatwave here in the UK this week and boy is it hot but it hasn't slowed us down here at BHT!
Following on from my article on Henry VIII's burial place on BBC HistoryExtra.com last week I have now been asked to write a follow up article (although I'm keeping the title secret for now)! If you didn't get chance to read the article here is the link......
I hope you have a glorious week. Please drop by our Facebook page and let us know what historical places you've been visiting, we'd love to know! Maybe share some of your photos?
Bye for now!
