Wolverhampton: Hereward The Wake
28th March @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Hereward The Wake
“The Last True Englishman” or “A Hero of Romance More Than History?” Famed through folklore, immortalised through myth, Hereward The Wake has been depicted as an all-action hero of Anglo Saxon descent (but he could have been half Danish!).
His adventures and escapades were recorded in prose and verse within 40 years of his death which was unusual. But just WHO was he?
Let’s sort the myth from fact; the legend from reality. All in costume from the 11th century of course.
Retired history teacher, Max Keen will tell us all.
