Body: 
For almost eight centuries, the tiny sliver of bone has been venerated by distant devotees of England’s famous “turbulent priest”. But this weekend, Thomas Becket’s elbow will make a solemn, if fleeting, return from Esztergom, in Hungary, to Canterbury, the seat of his clerical authority – and the scene of his brutal murder. At 3pm on Saturday, a group of pilgrims, Hungarian dignitaries and interested onlookers will assemble at St Michael’s church in Harbledown to follow in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims chronicled in The Canterbury Tales. From the village described by Geoffrey Chaucer as “bobbe-up-and-doun”, they will walk an hour to Canterbury Cathedral. Their ancient forerunners’ purpose was “the hooly blisful martir for to seke”;...

Controversial academic and renowned authority on the Tudors, David Starkey, just can’t help himself sometimes. He brings his latest talk, The King Is Dead: Royal Death And Succession Under The Tudors, to Portsmouth this weekend. It’s a world that is so strange and so foreign as to what we think of as England David Starkey The Tudor period has long held a grip on the public imagination, thanks in no small part to David’s own popular documentaries, but also proved by the recent success of Hilary Mantel’s Man Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall and its BBC adaptation.

Body: 
In a few hours, Shane Adams will don 70 kilograms of armour, pick up a long wooden lance and mount his horse. Then, taking aim at his opponent's chest, he'll charge. If all goes well — for Adams, that is — his lance will connect with the oblong piece of metal shielding over the other rider's left lung and shoulder. If all goes really well, the hit will knock his opponent clean off their mount. If it doesn't, well, then he'll be the one lying in the dirt. "Jousting is one of the stupidest things anyone could want to do," he said. "I have broken my hand probably seven or eight times, seen bones sticking out of it, I have dislocated shoulders, I have had punctures, broken ribs …" And he never, ever wants to stop. The 46-year-old is the foun...
