Kevin Crossley Holland’s acclaimed historical novels reflect his fascination with the medieval world. At the heart of his most recent novels – Bracelet of Bones, Scramasax and Gatty’s Tale - are long and perilous journeys undertaken by his two feisty heroines: Viking Solveig and local lass Gatty. Gatty travels from the Welsh Marches to Jerusalem, heart of the medieval universe, as depicted on Hereford’s own 13th Century masterpiece the Mappa Mundi. Solveig leaves the frozen isolation of her Viking landscape for the heat and intrigue of the Empress’ court in Constantinople. Along the way, each will make new friends and encounter unexpected wonders, but will also have to overcome great danger to discover who they really are and what it is that they truly believe in. Join us at The Courtyard for a fascinating insight into the creative world of one of our most successful children’s authors.
‘Crossley-Holland’s evocation of the period is detailed and fascinating. Food, clothing, religion, art, song and skill are depicted convincingly, as is the sheer toil, danger and stoically-born hardships of that age of heroism and villainy... Superb storytelling’
