Medieval Canterbury Weekend, 3 – 5 April 2020

The History Weekend comprises 25 ‘events’, mainly lectures but also some guided tours of important medieval buildings in Canterbury. Among the highlights of the Weekend are talks by Caroline Barron, Diarmaid MacCulloch, Sophie Ambler, Michael Wood and Imogen Corrigan. Sweeping across the Middle Ages, we have speakers on Anglo-Saxon society through to the eve of the Reformation, with much in-between!

Lectures and guided tours are classified under five themes: ‘Kings and Queens; ‘War and Politics’; ‘The Church’, ‘Books and Manuscripts’ and ‘Social History’ to allow audiences to gain access to new interpretations, ideas and knowledge in a range of medieval topics.


In aid of the Ian Coulson Memorial Postgraduate Award fund helping postgraduates studying Kent history topics at CCCU.
