The archaeology of Leicester’s Lost Medieval Churches

A digital talk by Mathew Morris, University of Leicester Archaeological Services

Thursday 16 September, 7.30pm


In the medieval period there were eighteen churches, chapels and religious houses in the borough of Leicester. Today, only six survive. In this talk, Mathew will look at three of these lost sites, the parish churches of St Peter and St Michael and the hospital of St John, which have all been rediscovered by excavations in the city centre over the past 20 years, most notably during the excavations for the Highcross shopping centre.

The talk will be delivered via Zoom. The talk is FREE but booking is essential. Tickets can be booked up to 5.30pm on the day of the talk and a link will be sent to attendees shortly after 6pm on the day.
