The Medieval Leper: the Huntingdon and Norwich Evidence by Dr Elizabeth Popescu
This talk will detail the evidence for medieval leprosy from two cemetery sites: one at the Hospital of St Margaret, Huntingdon (Spittals Link) and the other at St John Timberhill, Norwich. While the character of these sites is quite different, they each have interesting stories to tell about those suffering from leprosy at this time, and how these individuals were treated in life and in death.
Liz is the Post-Excavations & Publications Manager at Oxford Archaeology East, based in Cambridge. She has research interests in urban medieval archaeology and in cemeteries and castles in particular.
23rd May 2013 at 7.30 pm in the Tony Cooper Suite, Cottenham Village College
