Anne Boleyn's Book of Hours

Anne Boleyn's book of private devotion is not only a splendid example of Flemish religious book painting. It is also a unique and intimate glimpse into her affair with Henry VIII. A remarkable written exchange between her and Henry on its pages reveals a lot about what drove the king to remake England from scratch - all for the love of a woman and her tempting promises. 

Rob Ainsley talks to curator Scot McKendrick.
