33 Questions with Philippa Gregory at Sudeley Castle

24th June 2019

I joined DigVentures at Sudeley Castle during their search to find the remains of a banqueting house on the grounds, which Elizabeth I would have used when she visited in 1592. While there, I did a question and answer session you can watch in this video – some of the questions were really entertaining.

Sudeley Castle was the final home and burial place of Kateryn Parr, the heroine of my novel The Taming of the Queen. It’s always wonderful to visit Sudeley, especially to take part in a dig like this, and I really enjoyed my time there. DigVentures also have a series of videos about the excavation and what they discovered on their page that are worth a watch.
