The title of his talk is 'A Veritable Carpet of Memory': Memorial Brasses in Late Mediaeval England.

It will be held in St Mary's Church, Haddenham, which itself has a couple of interesting brasses, on Wednesday 21st October, at 7:00pm: doors open at 6:30pm and a free glass of wine / juice will be provided. There is a charge for the talk of £3.00 for Friends and a charge of £7.00 for guests.

Tickets will be available at the door but in order to help organisers plan for the number attending they would be grateful if you could let Nick Morgan know. Tel: 01844 291217 or Email: 4nick.morgan@gmail.com
