Viking Age East Anglia

Tue 21 Jan, 2025 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm

by guest speaker, Dr Richard Hoggett

From the middle decades of the 9th century until the Norman Conquest, East Anglia was an integral part of the Viking world which spanned the North Sea basin. Drawing on historical sources, archaeological sites, artefacts and place-names, this lecture explores the evidence for the Viking presence in East Anglia, from the initial campaign of the Great Heathen Army and the martyrdom of King Edmund, to the subsequent settlement and integration under the Danelaw, and the second wave of raids on the region’s towns which took place in the 11th century.

Dr Richard Hoggett is a freelance heritage consultant, lecturer and writer with over 25 years’ experience in the academic, commercial and local authority heritage sectors. As a lecturer, he speaks regularly on a wide range of archaeological and historical subjects to groups and societies across the eastern region, and has published extensively in numerous books and journals, as well as more popular pieces. He is an elected Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.
