Changing Beliefs: The Archaeology of the East Anglian Conversion

This lecture for the The Probus Club of Hethersett, Wymondham and District examines the conversion of the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity, one of the most significant cultural changes in our nation’s history and it changed the Anglo-Saxon landscape forever. This lecture uses documentary sources and artefacts, cemeteries, settlements and early churches from the region’s rich archaeological record to present an overview of the adoption of Christianity in seventh-century East Anglia.
