Description

Pigs in Medieval Kent

Dr Sheila Sweetinburgh

This talk will explore pig farming in medieval Kent, from the possible use of temporary settlements and extensive management within the system of dens, to more intensive stall kept pigs, as seen in the manorial demesne records. However, pigs for medieval people were far more than just farm animals, and this talk will consider the role of the symbolic pig in the Middle Ages.
