The Zoom Talk on Emma of Normandy
« on: June 17, 2022, 12:46:03 PM »
This was really interesting to me because I knew nothing about her but her name, and she was really an interesting character.  Many thanks for putting this on Zoom.

In fact, I should like to see more Zoom discussions about our subject as I'm getting (no, I AM) old and can't get out to genuine meetings anymore, and there could be others amongst our membership in the same position.

What do you think?

Wessex Woman

Norman Yoke

You're more than welcome Jayson, I'm glad you (and other members) could make it! We had over 60 attendees on the night which was delightful to see. For anyone who missed the talk but would like to catch up, here's the recording on YouTube:


Also, if I gave a talk a few months ago on the same platform about Lady Godiva, which can be viewed here:


I am considering giving a talk either on the Norman Yoke and/or on Margaret of Wessex/St Margaret of Scotland next, so watch this space!
