Have you ever wondered about the history of Leicestershire’s parks? Why are they in that particular spot? What was there before? In Cardinals, Castle and Queens, Mathew Morris looks at the archaeology of three of Leicestershire’s much loved parks, Abbey Park, Castle Hill Country Park and Bradgate Park. Ice Age hunters, medieval Knights Hospitallers and Tudor Queen’s and Cardinals, all have left there mark on the park landscape we enjoy today, and all thee parks have seen recent archaeological excavations investigating their history.

Mathew will also be giving talks on:
