So we are up and running because Dean Irwin from CCCU has today given the first of the FREE Lunch Time Lectures which was absolutely excellent. More on that anon, but to say next week our speaker at 1pm on Wednesday will be Dr Daniella Gonzalez whose talk is entitled ‘Conceptualising Common Profit in Late Medieval London: the Jubilee Book, a Case Study’.
I’m going to concentrate on the Medieval Pageant this week because it has now become a major day in Canterbury’s calendar, and once again Professor Louise Wilkinson led a team of staff and students from CCCU to bring family-friendly activities to those on the city trail, but first I want to bring other matters to your attention.
Before I come to the Centre’s involvement in this year’s Medieval Pageant in Canterbury which took place today, I thought I would just mention a couple of other events that have involved Centre and Canterbury Christ Church medievalists over the last week. Firstly, before the King’s School broke up for the summer, I met up with Janet Taylor who runs Classics there to broach the idea of running a sixth form workshop again next academic year for Classics students. Janet was enthusiastic, and I’m also hoping to keep the same link going with Claire Anderson concerning her lower and upper form historians.
