The oldest known will of a woman in England dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era and was made by a lady who lived in Ebbesbourne Wake, a village in the heart of our very own Chalke Valley. Michael Wood will tell the story of Wynflaed and her world, in the days of King Athelstan, looking at the role of women in early English society, in an intimate portrait of the Chalke Valley more than a thousand years ago.
