Dr Philip Morgan will deliver a lecture on ‘The History of the World viewed from Chester’. Ranulf Higden, Cheshireman and monk wrote the most popular medieval history of the world, and also had a good deal to say about lust, adultery, and even how to recover virginity. Here is the story of a remarkable career. This lecture is a joint event between Goostrey Guild and Goosfest.
Philip Morgan is a medieval historian at Keele University, editor of the Cheshire Domesday, and a study of warfare practiced by Cheshire men and even the occasional Cheshire dog.
