Æthelstan: A Great Anglo-Saxon King An evening lecture with Tim Porter Thursday 18th July, 7- 8.30pm This evening lecture provides a case study of a great Anglo-Saxon ruler, who died at Gloucester, was buried at Malmesbury and used Cirencester as his collection point for tributes. He united the English nation and won the greatest battle of the age. But how much do we really know about him? So much seems to be based on legend, supposition and unreliable sources. This lecture by Tim Porter aims to unpick the threads and come a little closer to the real Æthelstan. Cost: £5.65 or £5 to season ticket holders. All lectures are from 7- 8.30pm (this includes time for questions). Finish times may vary. Contact details: Corinium Museum, Park Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 2BX Tel: 01285 655611
