Question from Helen - Trial records for Anne and George Boleyn

I heard that the trial records of Anne and George's trial exists- do you know where it is held and how we can find information on it?

The records are deposited at the National Archives (aka The Public Record Office) at Kew, west of London. They are contained in the files known as "Kings Bench," part 8, file 9, consisting of 21 sheets of vellum under the title "Roll and file of the Court of the Lord High Steward and Peers, Principal Defendants and Charges: Queen Anne Boleyn, Sir George Boleyn Lord Rocheford, high treason, adultery and incest." Access to the files is very limited.
