Talk: The History of English Law (Worksop)

Priories Historical Society's own Mike Langley gives a whirlwind tour of the evolution of the English legal system from pre-Anglo-Saxon times to the present day.

With some curious and interesting facts along the way -such as what did the term to be "hung, drawn and quartered" really mean, the true story of "Sweet Fanny Adams" and the man who beat the hangman's rope- "three times Lucky Lee".

The talk starts at 7.30pm on Thursday 6th November at the Innings public house, Prospect, Worksop S81 0RS. Entry is only £3 and there will be a bar on. plenty of parking outside.
