Greg Jenner was joined by Dr Tim Wingard and Kiri Pritchard-McLean to look at what we know about animals in medieval Europe. From hunting and farming to companionship and entertainment, animals have long been a part of our culture but how did the beliefs and treatment of animals by our medieval ancestors inform our societal values today? And just how do you lick a bear into shape?!

You’re Dead To Me is a production by The Athletic for BBC Radio 4.
