Writer of the month: An intimate history of your home

Lucy Worsley discusses the writing of If Walls Could Talk: An Intimate History of your Home.

Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, the independent charity which opens up the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace to more than three million visitors a year.

Before this, Lucy worked for English Heritage and Glasgow Museums. As well as having written three books about history, she occasionally presents history television programmes for the BBC.

This talk was part of Writer of the Month – a series of free talks, in which each month a high profile author shared their experiences of using original records in their writing.
