Geoffrey Chaucer – one of the greatest poets in the English language – in many ways personifies popular perceptions of the Middle Ages in England. His stories and characters have been brought to life on film, on the stage and in popular fiction. In this talk Chaucer enthusiasts Euan Roger and Henry Eliot dig deeper into the true story of Chaucer’s life, discussing the people and places that inspired his work.

This online talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams. Talks last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
