ERO Presents: Romans, Saxons and Princely Burials

Join us on the Saturday 28 May to learn more about the landscape of Essex as the Saxons knew it.

This series of talks will explore various aspects of the landscape of Essex in the ‘Saxon period’, and in particular how it was divided-up into a series of small districts or ‘early folk territories’.

The East Saxons are known to us in various ways: our county of Essex is named after them, the ‘Prittlewell Prince’ must have been a member of their royal family, and the evocative chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall is one of the earliest Saxon buildings to have survived in the whole of England. Both documentary sources and archaeology tell us something of the political and religious history of the East Saxons, but until recently we knew far less about the wider rural landscape.
