Life and death in medieval Dublin: new lecture series

The first of a new lecture series presented by the Friends of Medieval Dublin gets underway today at the Wood Quay venue of Dublin City Council.

Living in eleventh-century Dublin will be presented by Emer Purcell, starting at 1:05pm. The lecture is free and open to the public.

As we're in the year of commemoration for the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf (23 April 1014), the new lecture series will focus on the daily life of eleventh-century Dublin, how every-day Dubliners lived, worked, prayed, fought and died.

The full programme of lectures is not yet available, but I'll add details here as soon as they've been finalised and published.
