Invisibility! Homeschooling Tudor Spies

This ninth episode in the special series of Histories of the Unexpected Homeschooling explores INVISIBILITY and Tudor Spies! The Unexpected History of invisibility is all about stealth technology and travelling under the radar, priest holes and hiding during WWII, Stalin’s erasure of the past, being hidden from history, and of course spies, cryptography and the secret world of the Tudors. James and Sam explore the world of the Tudor spy, including the Babington Plot of 1586, and look out for recipes to make invisible ink and how to hide a secret letter inside an egg!
