Remembering the Execution of St. Thomas More

Durendal covers it here with the added bonus of two video clips--one from the movie, A Man for All Seasons, one from "The Tudors" television series.

It would be a great time to start reading A Daughter's Love: Thomas More and His Dearest Meg by John Guy. The book's prologue opens on an August morning in 1535 with Meg retrieving her father's skull from the bridge-master of London Bridge where it had been displayed. On previous visits she had recognized the skulls of John Houghton, Prior of the London Carthusians, and Bishop John Fisher.
