O what we ben! Discovering post-apocalyptic landscapes
25 November, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
On this interactive walking tour you will uncover the hidden post-apocalyptic landscapes of Canterbury through the narratives of Russell Hoban’s Riddley Walker, set in a Kent of the future following nuclear devastation, and the Anglo-Saxon Andreas, set in the ruins of a city peopled by devil-worshipping cannibals. Over a thousand years separates the writing of these works of literature, but together they have much to tell us about the enduring power of ruinous urban landscapes on the popular imagination.
This event is also taking place on Friday 17 November and Friday 24 November.
