The Revealing Records conference series brings together postgraduate students from across the UK and Europe to share challenges and approaches in the study of medieval sources. Revealing ‘records’ from coins to castles, letters to law codes and chronicles to crusade sermons, from the sixth century to the fifteenth, the series is a highlight of the postgraduate calendar. Hosted by the King’s History Department, previous benefactors have included the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Royal Historical Society, the Henry III Fine Rolls Project and the King's Arts & Humanities Research Institute (AHRI).
Keynote speakers :
Professor Julia Crick (King’s College London)
