Book launch at Hereford Cathedral
Death in the Close: A Medieval Mystery
We had a lovely evening last week at the book launch at Hereford Cathedral. The new book launched in College Hall is called’ Death on the Close: A Medieval Mystery’.
Andy Boucher one of the archaeologists who co-authored the book, was on hand to tell us about some of the discoveries and explained their findings from the excavations that took place in the Close between 2009-2011.
We were treated to a meeting with one of the stars in the book – a possible knight of Norman origin. Andy could explain to us how the Medieval man met his end and roughly how long ago.
I found the talk to be really interesting and now have the book on sale in the Butter Market.
I also have another Hereford Cathedral book on sale ‘ Mappa Mundi Hereford’s Curious Map’.
Pop in to find out more about these books and other books of local interest in Hereford Butter Market every Wednesday – Saturday 11am -4pm
