Anne Boleyn, George Boleyn and the ghost of gay rights

I was very pleased to write a guest article for Susan Bordo's blog on her wonderful new book, The Creation of Anne Boleyn. My article, Anne Boleyn, George Boleyn and the ghost of gay rights, can be read by clicking here.


  1. Hello Gareth! Hope you might enjoy my article on why Anne Boleyn was beheaded with a sword and not an axe (and its nothing to do with France) . Thinking of gay rights I am dashing to a friend's civil partnership this weekend straight from a talk at Bosworth battlefield where I am going to have to appear in full wedding kit, and pray my hair is not pushed askew by enraged Ricardians (my talk on the Princes in the Tower suggests he had a role...) . Cross fingers I make it to the pergola on time..

  2. Good luck! I made the idiot's mistake of saying I thought he was the guilty party in an interview with the Washington Post and the more zealous of Ricardians were NOT pleased. I hope the ceremony went well and the talk went safely.

    And I loved the article on Anne Boleyn's execution; I'm going to link to it from here, if that's alright!
