Dr John Jenkins, Assistant Director of the Centre for Pilgrimage Studies, University of York, will be Walking through History, looking at pilgrimage in the British Isles from its revival in the mid-nineteenth century to the present day, showing how and why the ideal of a medieval 'Golden Age' continues to shape how we think about pilgrimage today and why historical 'authenticity' has become so attractive for modern pilgrims.
