Emma of Normandy talk - Wednesday June 15th
« on: June 04, 2022, 11:17:12 AM »
Morning all,


Back in February I gave a talk about Lady Godiva for the organisation History Indoors. In just under a couple of weeks I'll be giving another talk, this time on Emma of Normandy. Details should be in the forthcoming Withowinde, but I thought I'd add them here too. The talk will take place online via Zoom on Wednesday June 15th at 7pm. Sign up for free via this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/who-was-emma-of-normandy-tickets-272181511227?aff=ebdsoporgprofile


Best wishes,
Steven

     Harriet O'Brien's  'Queen Emma and the Vikings', (if you haven't read it), is a good book to compliment any talk on 'multi-queen' Emma.  They used to do a digital copy of the Ecomium Emma Regina in the British Library if you have a 'readers' pass.

Thank you David for signing up and Peter for your suggestions! Thankfully Suffolk libraries have a copies of a couple of books on Emma, including the first you mentioned, that I’ve been hogging for a few months now!

---thanks, that was a very interesting talk.  I knew very little about Emma, just that she was the great-aunt of The Bastard of Normandy and that she was the second wife of Edward, but I shall now hunt for more information.


And I do look forward to more Zoom talks about our subject
