Since the 17th century, four African men have looked out over the River Thames from the rooftops of Lambeth Palace.

These four men depicted on the weather vane of the palace’s Great Hall are part of the coat of arms of Archbishop William Juxon and are just a few examples of the images of Africans inside the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

This talk by public historian Kelly Foster will explore her research into the heraldry of Archbishop Juxon and discuss the presence and representation of Africans in the early 1600s.

This event is hosted by Kelly Foster.

Cost: Free of Charge
