Compare Source A and Source B as evidence about the murder of Darnley.
Source A describes the murder of Darnley. It was written by an historian in 1734 as an account of the life of Mary Queen of Scots.
Darnley had only been in the house, where Mary had taken him, for two weeks when it was blown up with gunpowder. It happened about one or two in the morning, and only a few hours after the Queen had left him.
Darnley's body, and that of a servant who had shared the room with him, were found in the garden beside the house. Darnley's body did not have any mark of violence, or hurt, or wound on it. Neighbours reported seeing Bothwell's men near the house.
Source B is a sketch made just after the murder. It shows the house destroyed after the explosion and Darnley's dead body.
