TUDORS

Predicting the Fall of Anne Boleyn

In his pursuit of the queen, Thomas Cromwell was guided by a prophecy foretelling treason. 

CENTRAL AMERICA

Building the Panama Canal

The Panama Canal project has always attracted insane optimism, corruption and disaster. The US took control of it on 4 May, 1904.

GENDER

Hidden but not Lost

Writing a history of transgender people poses unique problems and there is limited time in which to do it.

RELIGION

John Wycliffe Condemned as a Heretic

The English theologian was condemned by the Church Council of Constance on 4 May, 1415. Fortunately for Wycliffe, he was already dead.

Q&A

On the Spot: Helen Castor

Tudors or Stuarts? Rome or Athens? Braudel or Gibbon? We put medieval historian Helen Castor on the spot.
