Medieval Wexford in focus at Historical Society lecture
Wexford Historical Society's March lecture is due to take place in St Michael's Centre at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15. The talk will be on Medieval Wexford and will be delivered by Ian Doyle, Head of Conservation at The Heritage Council. Ian was most recently co-editor, with Bernard Browne, of 'Medieval Wexford, Essays in Memory of Billy Colfer'. Ian will explore the medieval period, as seen through history, archaeology, language, settlement and landscape. The county's landscapes are closely associated with the Anglo-Norman conquest of the 12th/13th centuries which is evident in Dunbrody abbey, the medieval boroughs of Bannow and Old Ross and the history and archaeology of New Ross and Wexford and the villages of Ferns and Taghmon.
