Max Adams: Across the Sea, Along the Wall

To coincide with the 900th anniversary of Carlisle Cathedral and the 1900th anniversary of Hadrian’s Wall, we are thrilled to welcome the award-winning author and archaeologist Max Adams to the Cathedral. Max’s best-selling books The King in the North, The Land of the Giants and The First Kingdom: Britain in the Age of Arthur will be familiar to many, and at this special event he will explore the way in which Carlisle moved from being on the edge of an empire to the centre of journeys of faith and knowledge in the years after the fall of the Roman Empire.

This exclusive talk will shed light on Carlisle’s place in these troubled lands and we hope to discover new stories about the people who shaped the city as it is today.

Price: £10 / 16-18 year-old: £5 / Under-16s: Free

Venue: Fratry Hall, Carlisle Cathedral, Carlisle, CA3 8TZ
