Winter Seminar 2022: New Thinking on Medieval Fields

We’re pleased to announce our annual Winter Seminar and AGM, which will take place at Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge on Saturday 10th December 2022. This year’s theme is New Thinking on Medieval Fields, and celebrates the work of David Hall and Christopher Taylor (full programme details below). This year, there are three registration options:

  • Members: in-person attendance, including lunch – £35
  • Non-members: in-person attendance, including lunch – £40
  • Virtual attendance: £15

Please note that numbers are strictly limited due to the venue capacity and our wish to ensure reasonable social distancing, so do book early to avoid disappointment – this event usually sells out! There will be a waiting list, but we cannot guarantee you a place. Students may apply to Dr Susan Kilby for a bursary to attend, and again, these will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. If you have any questions, please contact Susan.


Medieval settlement and infrastructure archaeology seminar series 2021-2022

The inaugural seminar in this series took place in April 2021, and was so successful that we decided to extend it to four seminars, rather than the two originally planned. Papers from our first and second seminars, featuring current work in the UK and Ireland and northern and central Europe, are now available to view on our YouTube channel.
