Matthew Lewis Talk

On the 9th May we attended a fascinating talk given by historian Matthew Lewis at the Towton Battlefield Society meeting on ‘King Henry III – Son of Magna Carta”. The talk gave a brilliant insight into the life of this oft forgotten king who reigned for fifty-six years, the longest period of any English Medieval king, and who in Matthew’s words provided a ‘bridge between the chaos of the reign of his father, King John, and the order of his son who followed, King Edward I.
