‘Anglo-Saxon Archaeology in Leicestershire & Rutland’  by Peter Liddle MBE.

Peter Liddle kept a large audience informed and entertained for nearly 2 hours as he explored life and death in Anglo-Saxon Leicestershire & Rutland, illustrated with recent archaeological evidence.
He explained amongst other things about the significance of grave goods and the difficulty of finding Anglo-Saxon buildings, finishing with the coming of the Vikings and the Normans.
