Saturday 23 June 2018.at 2:30pm at the Ken Edwards Building on the University of LeicesterCampus.
The Hoskins Lecture this year will be given by Dr Stuart Wrathmell, perhaps best known to former students for his formidable ‘Atlas of Rural Settlement in England’, (with B.K. Roberts) but who has also done much distinguished work on early settlements, and his presentation to us of ‘Wharram Percy and its Landscape Contexts’ promises a fascinating update on that intriguing site.
The lecture is a public one, and the Friends encourage anyone who is interested in the topic to attend. A small charge of £3 is made on the door for those who are not members of the Friends, but in return for this you have a warm welcome to the lecture and to the tea afterwards in Marc Fitch House, No 5 Salisbury Road.
The contribution made to English local history by Professor W. G. Hoskins is widely recognised. As founder of the Department of, now the Centre for English Local History, his achievements are commemorated by the Friends each year in the annual W. G. Hoskins lecture given by a distinguished historian. Following the lecture, Friends and visitors are welcome to adjourn to Marc Fitch House for tea and conversation.
