Saturday 12th January 2019: Shropshire Seals and Seal matrices from the 12th to the 18th centuries

Saturday 12th January 2019: Shropshire Seals and Seal matrices from the 12th to the 18th centuries. A talk by John Cherry. Shropshire Museums recently acquired a silver seal found by a metal detectorist at Wrockwardine, which may have belonged to the 13th century prior of a local abbey. Shropshire Museums were very generously aided by the Art Fund towards purchasing the seal. This talk will look at a number of seals and seal matrices associated with or originating in Shropshire from the 12th century onwards.  2.30pm at the Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ND
