Buildings, Burials and Bones: The story of Hallaton’s lost pilgrims chapel

Over the last 10 years, community Excavations by the Hallaton Field Work Group, supported by University of Leicester Archaeological Services have uncovered not only the lost chapel of St Morrell but also a medieval graveyard at the spot where the famous Leicestershire bottle kicking traditionally takes place every Easter. Finds suggest that Hallaton could once have been a place of pilgrimage and connections with an important Iron Age shrine nearby point to this being a significant ritual landscape from prehistoric times to the present day. In this digital talk, Vicki Score, director of ULAS will take a closer look at what has been found.
