In this episode Melita Thomas talks about Bess of Hardwick, the Tudor Times Person of the Month. Since I had already done an episode on Bess in October 2015, we jumped right in to talking more specifically about land ownership and widows rights in Tudor England, so if you don't know much about Bess, I'd encourage you to listen to the other episode - I'll link to it in the show notes at Please remember to rate the show on iTunes if you like it - it makes a huge difference in others being able to find the podcast as well.
