The extraordinarily-rich heritage of West Norfolk was explored in a lecture given Richard Hoggett before a packed Lynn Town Hall on Wednesday night.
Dr Hoggett spoke on Anglo-Saxon Churches in and around King’s Lynn and kept his audience engrossed by his exploration of places of worship that have all disappeared in the wooden form known at the time – either demolished competely or rebuilt in stone after the Norman conquest.
Dr Hoggett, from the Suffolk Archeology Service, highlighted the field work done by Channel 4’s Time Team programme at Bawsey and Brancaster in uncovering the complex truth.
The talk was given as the annual Diana Bullock Memorial Lecture for the King’s Lynn Town Guides. At the end of the presentation, Richard Morley from the Guides said Dr Hoggett had given a “fascinating view of the subject and brought history to life”.
