Lincoln in the 13th Century
June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Lincoln was by far the largest urban settlement in the county by the beginning of the thirteenth century, with a population of around 7,000 people. Famous for its wool trade and home to an impressive cloth industry. Prospering from its location at the heart of a particularly large diocese (bishop’s see), and the Taxatio ecclesiastica of Pope Nicholas IV recorded more than 50 religious foundations that held land in the city by 1291. In this talk, Professor Louise Wilkinson will look at the story of this remarkable city in the thirteenth century, a city with which she first fell in love while studying it for her doctorate in the late 1990s.
