Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Study day partnership with The National Archives
Mary I has always been one of history’s villains – Bloody Mary. She is also often described as plunging the country into crisis over religion and succession.
At the National Archives students investigate original documents that uncover the real state of the nation during the reign of Queen Mary I and debate whether or not the country was truly in crisis.
At Hampton Court Palace those arguments are put to the ultimate test as students take on the role of Mary's councillors and get to put their questions and concerns to Mary I in person.
