THE LIFE AND TIMES OF GEOFFREY CHAUCER/A STOP ON THE ROAD TO CANTERBURY

The Canterbury Tales are a splendid evocation of life in medieval London. They epitomise the age of pilgrimage and the influence of medieval church life. Chaucer was a vintage Londoner living from about 1345 to his death in 1400. This course will focus on his poems and fourteenth century London life.


This will be the grand climax to the year’s programme with a visit to Rochester, a VISIT stopping-place on the pilgrim route to Canterbury. Here we will see the magnificent Norman castle, the elegant cathedral, the evidence for Henry VIII’s palace, and the development of Rochester as a coaching town with its connections to Charles Dickens.
