Archive 2018: The true description of her Majesties town of Barwick

2018 Venue 25

Town Hall, Marygate
Sunday 14:00 (30 minutes) No booking required

An illustrated talk by Dr Catherine Kent about the colourful, detailed but mysterious contemporary map of Elizabethan Berwick. The 'truth' about Berwick revealed by the map that was created by someone who knew the town intimately but was prepared to present it as he (?) felt it should be, rather than as it appeared on the surface. The talk is followed by a related walk beginning at 15:00 (venue 9). The map also features in an exhibition in the Main Guard, (venue 17).
