Miranda Kaufmann Black Tudors: The Untold Story
A black porter publicly whips a white Englishman in the hall of a Gloucestershire manor house. A Moroccan woman is baptised in a London church. Henry VIII dispatches a Mauritanian diver to salvage lost treasures from the Mary Rose.
From long-forgotten records emerge the remarkable stories of Africans who lived free in Tudor England, present at some of the defining moments of the age, paid wages like any other Tudors, christened, married and buried by the Church.
The untold stories of these black Tudors, dazzlingly brought to life by Miranda Kaufmann, will transform how we see this period of history.
Splendid… that rare thing – a work of history about the Tudors that actually says something fresh and new …
a cracking contribution to the field. Dan Jones, Sunday Times
