Summary

M. R. James & the supernatural

East Anglia’s rich archaeological heritage exists alongside fables, legends and stories, exemplified by the ghost stories of M. R. James. As a Cambridge based archaeologist, medievalist and curator, James was born and bred in the region, and was privy to its odd corners and folklore. This tour will introduce some of the world-class archaeological sites that are to be seen, together with a peep behind the curtain into pandemonium as we follow James’ fiction between monuments.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the Neolithic flint mines at Grime’s Graves
  • Listen to the haunting classic ghost stories in atmospheric surroundings
  • Tour Sutton Hoo, the burial place of kings and Britain’s richest archaeological find
  • Visit the reconstructed Saxon village at West Stow – a chance to sit in a Saxon Hall
