Talk at the Winona County Historical Society

July 19, 2017

During his talk at the Winona County Historical Society on Tuesday, August 8th, Taff will cover developments in Wales, his home country for the past two thousand years. From the Roman occupation, the age of the Saints, the Saxon onslaught, Viking intrusions and pilfering, and the vicious Norman effort to conquer the Welsh nation. The royal heavyweight HenryV111 was the responsible for the removal of the roofs at the great Tintern Abbey in 1536. Henry 1V also known as Henry Bolingbroke was responsible for vandalizing the monastery at Strata Florida (gothic arch) in 1402. The history of both of these Cistercian Abbeys will be discussed and are included on our Wild Wales bus tour this October.

The presentation is free to the public.
