What was Christmas like in medieval times?
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the finest Middle English romance, provides fresh insights into the Christmas traditions and customs of former times. Ad Putter, Professor of Medieval English at the University of Bristol, will introduce the poem and explore the Yuletide setting, with readings from the original poem. With Myra Stokes, Ad Putter is co-editor of the Penguin edition of The Works of the Gawain Poet (Penguin 2014).
