Canterbury: Field Trip


City of Canterbury, Canterbury Cathedral


On Friday, April 17, 2015, the students traveled further afield to the great medieval city of Canterbury, which is the episcopal seat of the Primate of England, or the Archbishop of Canterbury. Medieval Canterbury is not only famous because it was the destination of Chaucer's London pilgrims in The Canterbury Tales, but also because of its connection to Londoner St Thomas Becket. The students took a guided tour of Canterbury Cathedral, where Becket was martyred, and a walking tour of the city with historian Sheila Sweetinburgh.
