MEDIAEVAL HISTORY - DOMESDAY TO 1500
With the Coronavirus pandemic all meetings are cancelled until the advice from government suggests it is safe to meet again.
However, we are meeting via Zoom at the usual time and day. If you wish to join the online meeting, please send a Bird (top right) to the convenor for an invitation.
Please contact the convenor for more information - you can use the Bird to send a message.
Current interests include:-
- Are there tunnels under the centre of Beccles and if so where?
- What do the Beccles manor court rolls tell us about life in 15th century Beccles
- How to decipher medieval documents
- Street names and other place names in Beccles
- Daniel of Beccles and Medieval 'good manners'
This group will try to uncover what Beccles was like during this period.
This we shall do by finding out:
- who lived in Beccles;
- what they did;
- what they owned;
- whether they were affected by national events (e.g., the black death, religious upheavals (e.g., the Lollards), famine and the peasants revolt);
We shall see what we can discover from both published articles and original documents.
