The Ladds Lecture: A Joint meeting of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society and Huntingdonshire Local History Society

Professor Nicholas Orme, DLitt, FSA, FRHistS, Professor Emeritus, Exeter University, will talk about ‘GOING TO CHURCH IN MEDIEVAL ENGLAND’

MIllions of words have been written about the architecture of our medieval parish churches but what went on in them largely remains a mystery. Professor Orme has written a ground breaking study, praised alike by academic reviews and the press, including the accolade ‘Book of the Year’ by the Daily Telegraph. His talk will be based on the perspective of a Cambridgeshire or Huntingdonshire parishioner.

With book signing opportunity and the chance to meet friends in the Antiquarian Society that is generously supporting this meeting.

After the talk there will be a reception, with refreshments, and the opportunity to talk with Professor Orme. 

The talk is free to members of CAS and HLHS. Guests are welcome but we ask for a small donation of £3 per guest.
