Guest Speaker John Wyatt Greenlee – Eels of History.
A recording is now available to see here: https://vimeo.com/684756399 Eels start at 2m 28sec!
John, aka The Surprised Eel Historian, takes a light-hearted look at the medieval eel economy of St Albans and beyond. A medieval historian with a PhD in Medieval Studies from Cornell University, he’ll be joining us live from the USA to talk about one of his passions – the cultural history of eels in England from the tenth to the seventeenth centuries.
You’ll discover there is a strong historic link between eels, the River Ver and St Albans but no more spoilers, you’ll just have to come along for the full fascinating history. Tuesday 22nd February at 7.00pm. Please book your FREE place here: http://ow.ly/Kz5e50Hz5WA
After John’s talk we’ll have the short reports from the Society on the state of the Ver and our recent activities along the river.
