About Dr. Warnicke:

In June 2010, Professor Warnicke was interviewed by Showtime for The Tudors series. Her expertise in Tudor England was called upon to give historical depth to the fictionalized series. Dr. Warnicke has published numerous books and articles on Tudor women including three books featuring Anne Boleyn, Anne of Cleves, and Mary, Queen of Scots. Her most recent project is "Wicked Women of Tudor England: Queens, Aristocrats, and Commoners," which reveals how historians have validated negative gossip about Alice More, Jane More, Anne Boleyn, Katherine Howard, the Duchess of Somerset and the Countess of Leicester.

About SCA:

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th Century Europe with over 30,000 members worldwide. Members experience the fun of creating and dressing in the clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, while attending a wide variety of events including tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes, hands on workshops, and so much more!

Come and join in the camaraderie and excitement!!
