Saturday 8th January 2022 – ‘Aethelflaed, the Mercians and the River Severn

Our first meeting of the New Year is on Saturday 8th January 2022 when Dr Morn Capper will give a talk on ‘Aethelflaed, the Mercians and the River Severn’

Dr Capper’s research investigates the development of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia and relations with its neighbours (political, cultural, social and economic). She is currently researching how relations of power interacted with regional identity and culture during the making of Mercian hegemony over Anglo-Saxon England, and questions Mercian lordship and frontiers under the rulers Aethelred and Aethelflaed, Lady of the Mercians with particular respect to Shropshire and Shrewsbury.

2.30pm, at The Gateway, Chester Street, Shrewsbury, SY1 1NB
