This England … where did it come from?

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England’s pleasant pastures seen!

Words: William Blake 1808 Music: Sir Charles Hubert H. Parry 1916

Canute, to William the Conqueror, to the Tudors and everything in between.
The Anglo-Saxons and the Normans – gave us an enduring legacy,
but so did the Danes and  the Church.

An often forgotten and mysterious period in what was to become
‘English’ history.
The legacy lingers on visibly and even audibly in architecture, linguistics

and society.
An exploration into the great upheavals in society and community that disrupted and formed the cultural feeds into what was to become England and eventually Great Britain.
