Kathryn Hurlock

Wayfaring: Craswall

Virtual venue: Meet at Hay Festival main entrance for bus

Following the publication of The Welsh and the Medieval World: Travel, Migration and Exile, Dr Kathryn Hurlock talks about medieval movement and travel through Wales and the Welsh Marches. Having published widely on crusading and pilgrimage, she looks at Welsh and Marcher engagement in religious travel in the area, their responses to it in literature and oral culture, and the ways in which they engaged with, and understood, the world (both the natural and the man-made) through which they passed. After the talk, Ron Shoesmith, archaeologist, will lead a guided walk around Craswall Priory, founded by Walter de Lacy in c1225, and belonging to the French Order of Grandmont.

Bus will take you to Craswell Church and returns to Hay Festival by 1pm
