Topic- The Story of the Hedda Stone, by Dr Jackie Hall and Teresa Porciani

Teresa is in the final year of her PhD (University of Leicester) on figural sculpture dated 700-850. She will be talking about the identity of the figures on the Hedda stone, its ‘Roman’ models and Insular features, and its original function.

Dr Jackie Hall is the Cathedral Archaeologist and has recently been working with the Corpus of Anglo-Stone Stone Sculpture. She will be talking about the later history of the stone, from when it first entered the written record in the late 14th century and the legends that surround it.
