Story

Licoricia was a member of the nationally significant medieval Jewish community in Winchester and the most famous of its successful businesswomen. She was a highly educated wife and mother and raised funds for Henry III and Queen Eleanor as well as a number of national and local projects.

To date we have erected our statue of Licoricia by Ian Rank Broadley FRSS, published our book (Licoricia of Winchester: Power and Prejudice in Medieval England, by well-known author Rebecca Abrams), and developed lessons for Key Stage 3 pupils with Hampshire County Council. We have also installed an information board by the statue.

We're now raising money to create videos about Licoricia's life and times and their lessons for today.
