On Saturday, 10 April 2021 between 17:00 – 18:00 Dr, Jean Wilson will give a general introduction to what may be gained from the study of funerary monuments, concentrating not on the technical aspects (types, materials, development) but on the aesthetic and historical aspects, particularly emotional history.

Join us to hear about many monuments including, among others, examples from Apethorpe (Northamptonshire), Ashburnham (East Sussex), Blo’ Norton (Norfolk), Buckland St Mary (Somerset), Churchill (Somerset), Elveden (Norfolk), Eyeworth (Bedfordshire), Flitton (Bedfordshire), Great Gaddesden (Hertfordshire), Hillingdon (London), Little Saxham (Suffolk), Lichfield (Staffordshire), Ringsfield (Suffolk), Sibton (Suffolk), Southwick (West Sussex), Spetchley (Worcestershire), Stanford-on-Avon (Northamptonshire), and Sutton-at-Hone (Kent).

Dr Jean Wilson spent her academic career teaching in universities in the UK and USA with a very short stint in China. She has published books on the court cults of Elizabeth I, and Shakespearean playhouses, but her main interest is early modern British monuments, to which she brings (she hopes) a late-twentieth-century feminist approach.
