Offa of Mercia

Saturday 22 October 2022, 10.00AM to 4:00pm

Speaker(s): Gillian Waters BA MA PGDip PGCE

Offa, the Anglo-Saxon ‘King of the Mercians’, was a power to be reckoned with in eighth century England. At the height of his power, Offa controlled most of England south of the River Humber, excluding only Cornwall, and is traditionally believed to have constructed Offa’s Dyke between his territories and Wales. Considered by many to be second only to Alfred the Great in his achievements, this day course will examine the career of Offa of Mercia, his legacy and reputation.
