On International Women’s Day we look back at some of our famous Lincolnshire Heroines!
We’re turning the spotlight on four amazing Medieval women with strong ties to Lincolnshire. The legendary Lady Godiva, the indomitable Nicholaa de la Haye, heiress Alice de Lacy and Katherine Swynford, the mistress who became a royal duchess.
Sharon Bennett Connolly will look at the impact of these women, not only on the history of the county, but also on the history of England.
This online talk will be approx. 1 hour talk with 30 minutes Q&A afterwards
