In this session the artist, Carl Gent, brought their research into the biography of 8th century Queen of the Mercians Cynethryth for collective research and discussion.
Together we looked at written excerpts of Beowulf in Old English and in translation; clips from the TV show Vikings; excerpts from Marsden's own book 'On Sledge & Horseback to Outcast Siberian Lepers'; issues of Girl's Own Paper; and excerpts from A Tale Of Two Offas (Vitae Duorum Offarum).
