From the website:

In the ballroom of our own State ‘Palace’ hear international guest Dr Jonathan Foyle speak about his experiences at Hampton Court, England’s most significant palace of the Tudor age, and his ensuing work with the World Monuments Fund.

Dr Jonathan Foyle is an architectural historian, archaeologist and chief executive of the World Monuments Fund Britain. Jonathan is a regular presenter and specialist on many successful history programs in the UK such as Time team and Meet the ancestors and he presents the search for both Henry VIII and The Vikings in the forthcoming US History Channel Series Lost worlds. As Buildings Curator at Historic Royal Palaces for over seven years, he was responsible for researching the history and detailed architectural development of Hampton Court. His research discovered important new information about Cardinal Thomas Wolsey’s original palace and its Italian Renaissance influences.
