A richly illustrated lecture exploring the close links between significant royal figures of the Anglo-Saxon period and Shaftesbury Abbey. Emeritus Professor Yorke is a world renowned Anglo-Saxon expert and we are delighted to welcome her to give a fascinating insight into the lives of King Alfred, Cnut and other royals in Shaftesbury and how Shaftesbury Abbey was involved in much more than the care of souls on behalf of their royal patrons.
