Walter Map, born in the early 1130s, was a scholar, a cleric, a member of Henry II’s court, a humorist and and author of ‘The Trifles of Courtiers’, a delightful collection of stories, anecdotes, and personal reminiscences that deserves to be better known.  Professor Orme has also carried out research on the importance of Westbury Church as an early minster.
