Elizabeth Chadwick: What Happens in the Holy Land Stays in the Holy Land
Saturday 18th August, 2:45 pm - 3:15 pm
In 1183, the great William Marshal was still a household knight and in less than a state of grace when he embarked for Jerusalem having promised his dying lord, the eldest son of Henry II, that he would go there to pray for him and fulfill the crusading vow that the young man could not. Although we know a great deal about William Marshal’s life, his time in Outremer is a blank page. But just what might have happened there?
