Coat of Arms Tells a Story

Some of you may remember that I mentioned working on a heraldry project. Well, here it is! This was great fun and I learned a lot. I'm still not an expert, but I do feel as though I've gained a new respect for these works of art. I am a contributor today at English Historical Fiction Authors with a look at Margaret Pole's coat of arms.
