Aggie Elizabethan Tour with Dr. Norm Jones
June 19-27, 2023
Join USU’s Prof. Norm Jones on a tour of his favorite places in Elizabethan England. An eminent expert on Elizabethan England (and famous at USU for his lectures on Monty Python and the Holy Grail), he knows Tudor palaces, colleges, houses, and churches intimately. He will take you to his favorites in London, Cambridge, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford. Highlights include The Charterhouse, a former monastery in London where Elizabeth stayed before her coronation; the Globe Theater, the Commandery of the Knights of St. John of the Temple and the Temple Church, and Elizabeth's tomb in Westminster Abbey. Royal palaces at Hampton Court, Windsor and Richard will give a glimpse of how she lived. A play at the Globe Theater and another in Stratford-upon-Avon take us into the cultural riches of Elizabethan England. Great houses Elizabethan like Hatfield House, Ingatestone Hall and Broughton Castle take us into countryside and the lives of prominent Elizabethans. In Oxford and Cambridge, Prof. Jones will draw on his intimate knowledge of both universities to take us places most people never see.
