Tudor Networks
The Tudor government maintained a communication network that criss-crossed the globe. This visualisation brings together 123,850 letters connecting 20,424 people from the United Kingdom’s State Papers archive, dating from the accession of Henry VIII to the death of Elizabeth I (1509-1603).
On this page we can see all people who sent or received letters from two or more people, arranged chronologically left-to-right.
