Where were Mary and Elizabeth eventually united?


Activity
At the start of the course, we looked at what life was like in the 16th century. We know that there were no computers in those days and news was spread by people and not through newspapers and blogs.
However, imagine that you are a reporter for an online news site who has been following the trial and is present at the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots. Your readers want to know what happened at the trial and execution.
Write two blog entries: one for the trial in October 1586 and one for the execution in1587.
