Online CHAS Centenary ‘Canterbury in History’ FREE half-day conference

(jointly organised by CHAS and CKHH)

Saturday 13 February 2021 [online using Microsoft Teams Live Event]


The four talks on different centuries highlight the role and importance of specific people, places and events in Canterbury’s long and colourful history. Taking different dates relating to ’20, the speakers will explore what was happening in Canterbury at the time and how this fits into the context of local, regional, national and international issues relating to topics such as famine, pilgrimage, religious change, migration and colonisation, and world war. All the speakers have worked on Canterbury and Kent, and between them have an impressive array of publications. This half-day conference celebrates Canterbury Historical and Archaeological Society’s centenary and is organised jointly by the Centre for Kent History and Heritage and Canterbury Historical and Archaeological Society.


Booking is not required. Please join about 5 to 10 minutes before the start time.
