Portrait of Queen Mary from the Coram Rege Rolls. 1553 (KB 27/1168/2)

Using original Tudor documents held at The National Archives, students will carry out research into the reign of Mary I and consider whether her reign signified a 'crisis in monarchy'.

Once students have presented their findings in a debate, they will travel over to Hampton Court Palace for the afternoon's session.

Here they will have the opportunity to explore the Palace and have their arguments put to the ultimate test as they take on the role of Mary's councillors and get to put their questions and concerns to Queen Mary in person.
