Stepping into Medieval Worlds
Thu 8 June 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
In his account of Norman London, William Fitz Stephen declared that ‘the only plagues of London are the immoderate drinking of fools and the frequency of fires’. Join historical novelist, Tracey Warr, to hear about medieval literary sources she employs to construct the fictional worlds of her novels. Her books, set in early medieval Europe, draw inspiration from Fitz Stephen, Orderic Vitalis’ chronicle of the ‘extremely unrestrained’ Normans, Viking poets, recipe books and medical manuals from the middle ages, female troubadours, and the lascivious writings of medieval archbishops and dukes.
