Hidden Killers of the Tudor Home

BBC4 have recently broadcast the TV programme Hidden Killers of the Tudor Home in which historian Susannah Lipscombe discovers that in Tudor houses the threat of a grisly, unpleasant death was never far away in a world (and a home) still mired in the grime and filth of the medieval period – and she shows how we still live with the legacy of some of these killers today.

Special Collections were contacted last year and provided two images from our MS Hunter 364 to be used within the series.

The programme can currently be seen on the BBC iPlayer.
