Lecture on medieval King’s Lynn

Have your say

A medieval history expert will be giving a talk in Lynn Town Hall tomorrow (Tuesday, October 20).

Prof Mark Bailey is giving the second in a series of autumn lectures telling the Stories of Lynn.

The professor of Late Medieval History at the University of East Anglia, promises to give a dynamic view of Lynn during his talk on Towns and Markets in Medieval East Anglia, which starts from 6.15pm.

Prof Bailey, who had previously taught at the University of Cambridge, has specialised in the economic and social history of late medieval England.

He is particularly interested in the processes of economic development in medieval East Anglia, the rise of urban government and changes to medieval agriculture.

Each of the lectures lasts for about one hour and costs just £2.50 to attend.  

Ruth Farnan will be giving a talk on Understand Pieter Van Roestraeten’s Still Life with the King John Cup on Tuesday, October 27.

The lectures have been organised to celebrate the transformation of Lynn Town Hall, thanks to a £1,850,600 Heritage Lottery Fund grant and £800,000 investment by West Norfolk Council.
