In this special episode we bring you part one of our People’s Landscapes podcast series.
It’s Northey Island, 991 AD. Viking raiders clash in bloody battle with the Anglo-Saxon army defending their land. Dr Eleanor Barraclough, lecturer in medieval history at Durham University, explores how this violent incident resulted in a mashup of cultures we can still see today.
People’s Landscapes is part of a National Trust programme telling the stories of places that have shaped the nation, marking the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre.
