Professor Pauline Stafford of Liverpool University, one of the country's leading historians of early medieval England, with a special interest in the role of women in politics, notably the power wielded by queens, will give the 27th Earl Lecture at Keele University on Monday 14 October at 8pm.
Her lecture will range over the crucial late Anglo-Saxon period in which England emerged as a single kingdom and how our own county of Staffordshire may have fitted into this development.
The Earl Lecture is given every two years by an eminent national historian in order to promote the history of Staffordshire.
