About this event

Discover how 3D visualisations are opening up new ways of experiencing pilgrimage, including the shedding of new light on Thomas Becket and the cult site of Canterbury.

In the second part of our two-part series, ‘Pilgrimage Past and Present’, archaeologist Kate Giles and Dee Dyas, author of The Dynamics of Pilgrimage, discuss the University of York’s trailblazing work in improving our knowledge and sensory experience of pilgrimage past and present.

This is an opportunity to find out more about how the AHRC-funded project ‘The Becket Connection - Visualising Medieval Canterbury’, resulted in new evidence being used to create a reconstruction of the medieval shrine of Saint Thomas Becket, which was destroyed during the reformation.

Join Dee and Kate live for this in-conversation event.

To get the most out of this event, we’d recommend watching the first part of the ‘Pilgrimage Past and Present ‘series, Experiencing Pilgrimage, Past, Present and Future, which will be premiered on Sunday 13 June and then available to Watch Again on YouTube.
