The ‘I Am A Norman’ project presents photographs of some of those amongst us who have surnames derived specifically from the Norman conquest of 1066; names that came to this country with William; his knights and their vassals.
Photographers Nigel Green and Andrew Moran have searched out modern-day Normans in the 1066 area who have this link to the famous Battle itself. The project is part of the ‘Root 1066’ festival that celebrates the 950 year anniversary of the Conquest.
For full details see the I Am a Norman project website.
To open the I Am a Norman and Fishing People of Quiberville exhibtions on Friday evening September 2nd at 6.30pm photographers Nigel Green and John Cole invite you to take a ‘Photo-walk’ as part of the Root1066 festival and the Photohastings’ photo-season.
The walk will be between the ‘I Am A Norman’ exhibition in the bus shelters in Queen’s Road and Havelock Road, moving on to the Stade open space and fishing huts where Polly Gifford (Root 1066 Festival Director) will talk about John’s photographs of the fishing people of Quiberville and Hastings. These two shows highlight the Norman connections to Britain through the Conquest that took place 950 years ago.
The meeting place for the start of the evening will be outside the street door of Marks & Spencer in Queen’s Road at 6.30pm. Refreshments will be served at the Stade.
This event forms part of the Root 1066 Festival of Contemporary Arts
