About The Event
Treason, the divine right of kings, a cattle thief, and two rival families. Does this list sound like episodes of a popular TV show? It could be, but also these are the hidden stories behind some of the historic deeds and legal documents in Agecroft Hall’s collection. Join tour guide and legal researcher Mason Little as he tells the stories hidden between the lines. Learn the basics of the legal structure in Tudor and Stuart England. Find out which laws still apply to you today and examine the preserved and transcribed deeds with their wax seals.
