Conference to explore early medievel Kent and its role in history
23 August 2016
A conference exploring early medieval Kent and its important role in England’s history will take place this September.
William the Conqueror’s march through Kent after his success at Hastings in 1066 is testimony to the importance of the county. This joint conference, between Canterbury Christ Church University’s Research Centre for Kent History and Heritage and the Friends of Canterbury Archaeological Trust, will look at themes such as pilgrimage, landscape and the partnership between Crown and Church.
There will be eight lectures throughout the day, given by leading Kent historians and archaeologists, many of whom have contributed to the book Early Medieval Kent, 800-1220 (Boydell, 2016).
Early Medieval Kent 800 – 1200 takes place at Canterbury Christ Church University’s North Holmes Campus on Saturday, 10 September 2016, 10.00am to 4.30pm. Tickets are £10 per person, FCAT members £8. Christ Church students go free.
