A Lecture by Professor Tom James, MBE, Professor Emeritus in Archaeology and History at the University of Winchester

The Black Death, like Covid-19 today, was an unknown disease when it arrived in England in 1348. Research shows that the plague affected the country repeatedly for over 300 years. Professor James will discuss the effects of the Black Death on the arts from painting to pottery, stone and timber building, stained glass and more.

Did Gloucester buck the trend?
