Gain fascinating insights into rood screens and the churches where they are located

Lucy Wrapson is a paintings conservator and art historian specializing in the conservation of medieval panel paintings. In this session, Lucy will share her research into East Anglia's numerous medieval rood screens. She will describe how they were made and discuss evidence that suggests they were constructed and painted by the same carpenters and painters. Rood screens are brightly painted structures which once separated the nave from the chancel in churches throughout the region. They were defaced and dismantled extensively in the Reformation and Civil War but many are still to be found in Norfolk, Suffolk and East Anglia.
