site dedicated to the flagship of the Pirate Blackbeard or Edward Teach.

handy for piracy work.

sort of stuff, pretty inspiring.
those of you who cannot get down to Portsmouth this site gives plenty of
information on Henry VIII's great ship.

page of informal discussion about Tudor and Yorkist issues, primarily Richard
III. Useful for those distortion of History question we like to do

but lacks pictures and links.

only about the Bard, it contains useful information on his times as well.
