Friday 28th June - Special Event

“From the fury of the Northmen, O Lord Deliver Us”.

The delightful Dr Katherine Cross, St John University of York, will give an enthralling illustrated talk, bringing alive the Vikings who dominated this part of England from 869 to 1100 and highlighting St Edmund, our patron saint before St George.

The Vikings, renowned as fierce sea warriors and traders, are somewhat misunderstood by our modern world. The 200 years of The Danelaw still remain, 1,500 years later, in place names in our East Midland towns and Villages. Viking settlements, like Jorvik, tell too of their art, architecture and government.
