Cheshire and the Viking World - Guest Lecture
Professor Richard Morris, OBE presents an illustrated lecture, ‘Cheshire and the Viking World’, hosted by The Tabley House Collection Trust.
As an archaeologist with strong links to Cheshire he will explain Knutsford's Viking past as part of the celebrations to mark 1,000 since King Canute's visit to the town.
As Knutsford is celebrating 1,000 years of history since Canute famously came to the town and forded the River Lily, as part of ‘Heritage Open Days’ the Knutsford Promenades Community Association and The Tabley House Collection are pleased to present this as a free keynote lecture.
Professor Morris is a highly respected archaeologist, historian and author. He has worked at a number of British universities, including the University of York, the University of Leeds and the University of Huddersfield, and has held a number of significant positions within the British archaeological community, including director of the Council for British Archaeology from 1991-1999 and was Commissioner of English Heritage.
He is currently chair of The Blackden Trust, a charitable organisation involved in historical and archaeological investigation of Blackden, the late-medieval home of novelist Alan Garner, in Cheshire.
Complimentary refreshments will be served before the lecture which will start at 6.45pm.
