What was long identified as a burial mound near Vadstena, Sweden has been determined to be a huge building, probably a feasting hall, measuring almost 50 metres in length.
Eleri Lynn, Collections Curator for England's Historic Royal Palaces, is always looking for new items for the collection. She recently was thrilled to add the Bristowe Hat, "a rare example of Tudor or very early Stuart fashion made from silk tufting, with a green feather, silver button, and evenly positioned holes for attaching jewels."

From the 13th through the 15th centuries, the Hospital of St. John the Evangelist operated on what is now the grounds of St. John's College, Cambridge University. In 2010, archaeologists working there discovered the hospital's cemetery, considered one of the largest medieval hospital burial grounds in England. Photos of the discovery have now been released.
