Event Details


Leading historian and broadcaster Michael Wood looks at the roots of England in the formative centuries between the Romans and and Norman Conquest when many crucial aspects of English culture were formed.  Along with portraits of great rulers such as Alfred the Great and Athelstan, Michael will show exciting new manuscript evidence for less well known figures like Archbishop Theodore of Tarsus and Abbot Hadrian of Canterbury – the ‘man of the African nation’ as Bede calls him – and also Aethelflaed Lady of Mercians, and Eadgyth Queen of Germany, arguing that biography is possible for women too in this very creative and exciting time.
