The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in Lincolnshire
| The Collection
This illustrated lecture continues the series started last year based on the chronology of British history.
The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings suffer from one of the worst reputations in history. The numerous Scandinavian tribes and cultures that occupied Britain from 6th to the 10th Centuries are harshly dismissed by many as barbarian looters, rapers and pillagers. This period in time is often known as the 'Dark Ages' - a period devoid of the light of culture and civilization.
The lecture investigates whether this reputation is justified, or whether they should receive greater recognition for the part they played in shaping the history of Lincolnshire and England. A tour of the gallery relevant to the period and tea follow.
The committee looks forward to very good support for the lecture as it has for the 2 previous ones.
An optional lunch has been arranged at The Lincoln, Eastgate, Lincoln at 12 noon.
