"Henry VIII: Renaissance Monarch" Oxford Experience 14 - 20 July 2013

Henry VIII: Renaissance Monarch  
Oxford Experience
 14 - 20 July 2013
Tutor: Glenn Richardson

Henry VIII's lost crown recreated nearly 400 years on 

The lost crown of Henry VIII has been recreated in minute detail, down to the last pearl and thumbnail-sized enamelled sculpture, almost 400 years after the original was melted down along with every scrap of royal regalia Cromwell's government could lay its hands on.

The crown will be exhibited at Hampton Court Palace, where Henry wore the original on great occasions of state and church. It will be displayed in the royal pew of the Chapel Royal, which reopens this month after seven years of restoration work.
