Dissolution: Monasteries to Mansions Talk
Wednesday 19th July, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Peter Liddle for this talk in the Heritage Room at Bosworth Battlefield, which is one of the many events taking place during The Festival of British Archaeology (15th to 30th July)
Abbeys and priories were an important part of the fabric of medieval society, in the 1530’s they were swept away as Henry VIII broke with Rome and Thomas Cromwell dissolved the houses.
In this illustrated talk Peter Liddle will examine what impact this had on Leicestershire sites, both the religious houses themselves and their grange farms, with case studies of the process at Leicester Abbey, Grace Dieu and Launde, where Cromwell himself acquired the property.
