    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleDNF I'd just finished The Hidden Lives of Tudor Women A Social History and was all fired up to read about those usually invisible to overwhelming male historians not just women but people of other races It might even be a good book from some aspects but it wasn't an enjoyable one it was boring to the extreme Dry dry dry You know when you are reading and you can't remember what you just read and that happens repeatedly That's when it's time to admit defeat from turgid prose and look for something that holds your attentionWhat I got from the little I read about a uarter of the book was that Blacks in Italy and Spain were slaves and being property had no rights This was abhorrent to the UK and apart from a few brought in for private households there was never slavery in Great Britain So any Black reaching the UK no m

    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleThis is scholarly and well researched a continuation of Kaufmann’s PhD thesis in other words a proper history book There is a myth that there were very few people of colour in England in the Tudor period and that Elizabeth 1 made an effort to get rid of those that were Strictly Kaufmann extends her range to the mid 1620s Here ten particular men and women are identified and their stories told Kaufmann does have a tendency to wa

    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleWhat an extraordinary revelatory book The author has gone through the minutiae of parish registers and legal records to reconstruct the stories of Africans living in Tudor England on the way revealing just how many there were It's a staggering demonstration of how much history has been whitewashed The author puts each of the stories she's dug out into a wider context of the time skilled artisans pirates prostitutes musicians at the royal court divers; city people and country people; settlers and just visiting and shows how much international travel and immigration forced and voluntary was going on Obviously the historical record is sparse most people have

    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleScholar and historian Miranda Kaufmann has written vignettes of half a dozen or so Africans who lived and worked in England during the Tudor EraThe trouble with this collection is that so little information exists Kaufmann has to parcel it out among other well known history I still found it interesting but for readers looking for Black History only it feels rather disappointing The answers are complex but the uestions that most commonly spring to mind about the Black Tudors are simple why and how did they come to England How were they treated What were their lives like pg 3The answers

    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleI will hold back for now on the Scottish trumpeteer who worked in international espionage and the ecstatic user of a Tudor dildo who ‘With Oh and Oh itching moves her hipsAnd to and fro full lightly starts and skips ’ Suffice it to say that any fears that Kauffamn’s that Black Tudors may prove worthy but dull are unfounded There is an assumption Kaufmann believes that all Africans in British history have been enslaved victims and that the Caribbean slave trade was ‘almost inevitable’ – ie depressingly predictable Black Tudors opens however at a time when British involvement in the African slave trade was largely north to south with us as the slaves The coastal villages of Tudor England and Ireland were

    Kindle Edition Black Tudors Epub ´ black book, tudors book, Black Tudors KindleBlack Tudors by Dr Miranda Kaufmann is an ambitious book loaded with little known Tudor trivia that has long been overdue in the study of 16th century England and fortunately for the future of this little explored topic the result is a fascinating production of the utmost uality that takes a close look at ten individuals who could uite accurately be considered Black TudorsThere is a common held belief that these British Isles were inhabited by a native white population before the rise of Slavery the Industrial Revolution and the onset of twentieth century globalisation with the voyage of the Empire Windrush from the Caribbean that people of colour uite simply were unknown to our Tudor period ancestors Yet as Dr Kaufmann shows in this illuminating and extraordinarily in depth publication such a view is uite simply nonsense As the author notes in the blurb people of colour were
