Walking the Exeter Dead
November 24, 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join in this hour and a half’s walk through the centre of Exeter, exploring the history of the city through stories of deaths, diseases, and disasters. Meet at Exeter Central Library and then visit a number of locations around the city centre, discovering tales of witchcraft, skulduggery in the Cathedral Close, a fatal duel, and a saint who carried off her own severed head.
Researchers from the departments of English and History at the University of Exeter will share their knowledge of practices and beliefs surrounding sickness and death in the past and the walk will end at one of the town’s churches, where we will have the chance to chat over a cup of tea and examine facsimiles of wills and other historical documents.
