About the event

The medieval wall paintings at St Peter's include one of the oldest surviving images of the murder of Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. His tomb and shrine rapidly became a major focus of pilgrimage. Local historian James Simister will outline the development and role of pilgrimage, and why it has remained so important.
