Cristina Figueredo: The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall
Built between 1357 and 1361 on the site of a Norman mansion, the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall is one of the few surviving examples of Medieval Guild halls in Britain. The powerful medieval guild of the Mercers did business as well as socialised in its Great Hall, while the Undercroft was used as a hospital. This lecture will explore the medieval history of the York Guild of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary (later Merchant Adventurers) and their magnificent Hall.
