Warwick Medieval Society helps tell the medieval history popular culture usually ignores, a tale of rich cultural interactions, great learning and people power. Newly reinvigorated as a branch of HistSoc, our mission is to further the appreciation of medieval history at Warwick through running a programme of medieval themed events to stimulate thought and to provide you with new opportunities to have fun, not just in an academic way!
We primarily run a series of guest speaker talks from renowned experts in medieval history, which complement and expand on the first year Medieval World module but are open to all HistSoc members: most events need no prior knowledge of medieval history. We also aim to run trips to local medieval sites. Furthermore, we intend to hold primary source workshops to help those who are struggling to get to grips with the new and different material.
