One of the hardest part in my Anne of Cleves research is to go against so much popular opinion while having nice cold data that supports what I have been following, and what other lesser known scholars also have shared.
Where I am truly struggling is in definitions and borders. I can put Anna specific books and articles in a folder but everything else sort of… blurs.
But I have my few examples of art and extant items and a nice trail of leads.
I really just need time to read a couple of hundred documents to work out where they go.
It’s not so bad with OCR, I can search within a document >500 pages to work out why I saved it.
But two really important threads have popped up so I’m excited enough that I recut my Anne of Cleves skirt based on solidifying information.
I’M SO EXCITED.
