    Welcome to the July 2024 issue of The Antiquary. Some of you may have seen the recent video I released on YouTube about the lost palace of Whitehall, the principal royal palace in Tudor and Stuart London. In this issue, I begin by looking at three terracotta busts, portrait heads that were part of the royal collection at Whitehall and somehow managed to survive the fire that consumed the palace in 1698, to be rediscovered in a rag-and-bone shop in the 1760s.  Then we look at another extraordinary lost structure, Old London Bridge, which has long since been knocked down; it didn’t fall down as the nursery rhyme suggests!  As usual, there is always a thread connecting the various articles, and the thread between the first article and the second is Cardinal John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester; he commissioned the terracotta heads, and following his unjust execution at the hands of Henry VIII, his real head ended up on a spike on London Bridge.  The third article looks at the survival rather than the loss of historic buildings, and we look at the twelfth-century houses in the city of Lincoln – again, there is a royal theme, for recent research suggests that one of these was an English royal palace.t  I do hope you enjoy the issue, which marks the end of the second year of this publication, and I want to thank you for all of your support over that period of that time – there are lots more to come!
