Michael Wood, Hadrian and the Making of Early England

Published: 17th July 2020

Michael Wood opened the summer lecture series for the HA virtual Branch on the Making of Early England. In it he introduced key characters and texts that help to establish the cultural past of that time and also reveal to us what we know of it. These people included overlooked queens and also some of the men who travelled from other countries to bring learning and education to Britain. Amongst those that he mentioned was Hadrian the African, who was one of the men who played a key role in establishing Christianity in England and the British Isles.

If you would like to know more about this incredible person from our past we attach some factual information below, written by Michael Wood to accompany his talk.
