As in previous years, the CKHH was in charge of a location as part of the Family Heritage Trail around the city as part of the Medieval Pageant. Rather than in its normal July, this year it was last Saturday as part of the Canterbury Festival and, as Dr Claire Bartram and her son saw, the procession through the city included a new giant in the form of Thomas Becket. This giant was part of a schools’ competition, the design based on one provided by Ben, a Medieval and Early Modern undergraduate as part of the Applied Humanities module last April organised by Claire Bartram.
Dr Sheila Sweetinburgh is delighted that Dr Diane Heath, Research Fellow in CKHH, has taken over the Centre’s blog this week for some very exciting news! I (Diane) am delighted to announce my project on Medieval Animals Heritage in East Kent has been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £99,800, so first things first: Thank you Lottery Heritage Fund and thanks National Lottery players too.
