Learn how a “smooth field” where horses were sold and tournaments took place became London’s biggest meat market.

In this illustrated talk by Pete Smith you will learn how a “smooth field” where horses were sold and tournaments took place became London’s biggest meat market, what linked a holy man to a riotous fair, where bodysnatchers traded corpses with surgeons, and when Smithfield ran with human blood. You will also be introduced to a fat boy, a poltergeist named Fred and a red cow. Join us to learn more.

Please note: Further information for joining online via Zoom will be provided to attendees by 24 hours prior to the event.
