For years, an incredibly rare Tudor treasure lay tucked away in a church in the rural hamlet of Bacton. This altar cloth has long been associated with Elizabeth I through Blanche Parry, her long time servant who was born in Bacton. Now, new research has uncovered that this is in fact part of a dress worn by someone of the highest nobility at the Elizabethan court. Evidence points directly to the wardrobe of Elizabeth I, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth's clothing.
