Elizabethan London

Elizabethan London
Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...

Honourable Mention!


I received the CoffeePot Book Club Historical Fiction Book of the Year Honourable Mention for THIEVES' CASTLE!

That's amazing, especially given the week I've been having so far.

I will be cracking open something alcoholic to celebrate, but not until this flu is out of my system, I just don't have the energy for it right now.

Thank you Mary Anne Yarde and @coffeepotbookclub!
