Welcome to the Licoricia of Winchester Appeal.
Our book entitled ‘Licoricia of Winchester: Power and Prejudice in Medieval England, was published on 9 June. The book was commissioned by the Appeal by top author Rebecca Abrams.
The bronze, life-size statue of her and her son Asher outside ARC (the former) Discovery Centre in Winchester, near where she lived over seven hundred years ago, educates about the period and its lessons for today.
