One thousand years of
by Graham Bathe
15 March 2019 at 7.30 pm
in the Kennet Valley Hall, SN8 4EL
Recent archaeological and documentary research at Wolfhall is uncovering
a massive, brick-built, Tudor palace capable of holding
feasts for hundreds of guests, including royalty.
Yet this is founded on an older, medieval stone complex,
once held by the most powerful men in Wiltshire.
This talk will explore the latest findings, and explode some of the
Victorian and later mythology associated with this legendary site.
Graham Bathe retired from 40 years work in wildlife conservation
to concentrate on historical research.
He has conducted an intensive 20-year study of Savernake
based on original handwritten documentation dating
from the 1100s onwards, which provides the context for
historical research into Wolfhall and the Seymours.
