Making history

Lucy WorsleyMN Blogger and awesome art historian Lucy Worsley has been gracing our TV screens each Monday on BBC Two's 'Fit To Rule: How Royal Illness Changed History' - well worth catching up on.

This week she's been popping up all over the place - in the Guardian's My Family Values and talking Historic Houses in the Telegraph. In between all that, she's found time to write about the value of academics and her 'Dr' title. Read her compelling post: "should I be ashamed of being such a 'useless' sort of doctor?"
