This talk will focus on the medieval art and architecture of Camden, and reconstruct some of the most significant religious and secular buildings. Key sites to be examined include the former Palace of the Bishops of Ely and chapel of St Etheldreda at Ely Place, the hospital and chapel of St Giles-in-the-Fields, and St Pancras Old Church.

Our speaker Dr Ellie Pridgeon (FSA) is an archive consultant, undertaking work most recently for Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre. She also teaches art history and architecture at the Universities of Leicester, Oxford and Cambridge, and has published widely on medieval material culture in England.
