History on the Box Vlog: Lucy Worsley’s ‘Six Wives’

This is our first ever History on the Box vlog! We have a very special debate about Lucy Worsley’s ‘Six Wives’ programme, which aired on BBC One in December 2016. The motion for the debate is that ‘Lucy Worsley’s “Six Wives” is an effective and innovative approach to popular history’.

Liz Round is arguing for the motion. Liz is an AHRC Midlands 3 Cities funded PhD student in the Centre for English Local History at the University of Leicester. Her research explores clergy-lay relationships in seventeenth-century Herefordshire.

Katie Bridger is arguing against the motion. Katie is a PhD student in the Centre for English Local History at the University of Leicester. Her thesis is entitled ‘Expression and the landscape: the Leicestershire gentry, c.1460-c.1540’.

Enjoy! And let us know what you think…
