DateMonday 17th September 2018 to Sunday 29th December 2019
Description'Manors Maketh Man': Hereford Cathedral's Manors in the Middle Ages and Beyond The manor in England and Wales touched the lives of people of all walks of life from before the Norman Conquest to the twentieth century. The records it produced are a fantastic but underused source for understanding the lives of ordinary people. Hereford Cathedral's own main source of income came from manors, and preserved in the Cathedral Archives is a treasure trove of manorial records that are only just beginning to be explored. This exhibition looks at what a manor was, what kinds of records survive and what they can tell us about land, family, community, law and order, and life and death in Herefordshire over the centuries. This exhibition will take place within the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library exhibition and entry is included within the Mappa Mundi ticket price. The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday, 10am - 5pm.
