Video Description

West Country University of Kent lecturer Dr Alixe Bovey heads south-west toward Cornwall as she explores some of the myths and legends depicted on the Gough map. Such was the influence of these folkloric tales, they were frequently used to exert influence over the general populace and legitimise wars and empires.

Documentary Description

Medieval art historian Dr Alixe Bovey uses the oldest surviving route map of Britain to make a series of journeys through Britain in the Middle Ages. She follows the trail north from York to the hotly-contested Scottish border and uncovers tantalising clues to Medieval Britain's most dangerous war zone.
