Millennium, The Year 1000

Hay Festival 2000, 
Mystery and magicians, monks, warriors and wandering merchants- people who feared an apocolypse and people who had no idea what year is was or what lay beyond the nearest valley. People felt they walked hand-in-hand with God, and envisaged him so literally that even Christians were sometimes buried with supplies for the journey to the new life in heaven.
