Bourne is set against a backdrop of Neolithic ritual sites, Bronze-Age burial mounds, feats of Roman engineering and ancient churches and religious houses. Although this light-hearted PowerPoint presentation mainly explores the vestiges of the Anglo-Saxon age through its art, archaeology, architecture and landscape, it inevitably encroaches upon other periods of history. It also introduces characters whose names have become embedded in South Lincolnshireâ€™s history. They include the enigmatic Saints Firmin and Pega, Guthlac of Crowland and his hermits and home-grown â€˜heroâ€™, freedom-fighter and â€˜man of the monksâ€™, Hereward [the Wake]â€™, who has been dubbed â€˜The last Englishmanâ€™.
The Talk will last approximately 45-50 minutes and Dr Lumley Prior will welcome questions from the audience afterwards.|
