Thursday 14 September
IAA Lunchtime Lecture - Charles II & the Mystery of the Ancient House
1.00pm - 2.00pm
Museum Street Methodist Church, Black Horse Lane, Ipswich, IP1 2EF



John Sutton asks "Did Charles II hide in Ipswich's Ancient House during his epic flight after the battle of Worcester in 1651?" While compelling evidence exists to refute this idea, a more distant association between the two can be established. For the woman who played the most vital role in Charles II's preservation - the royalist heroine Jane Lane - almost certainly took refuge in the Ancient House when she herself was on the run shortly after the Merry Monarch's Great Escape. This is a tale of derring-do, intrigue and suspense. Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
Admission is free with a retiring collection to defray expenses. Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series.
