The Medieval Battlefield

Saturday 1st May 2021

Ongoing Coronavirus restrictions obliged us to cancel our normal residential Conference but we are  pleased to announce a special one-day online event, combining the medieval content of the original programme with a new discussion panel.

‘The Medieval Battlefield’ features contributions from Professor Anne Curry, and leading authorities Dr Dan Spencer, Dr Thom Richardson, Graham Evans, Dr Sophie Ambler, Dr Matthew Bennett and Mike Ingram.

The programme will include morning and afternoon talks plus a panel discussion on the vexed question of numbers on the medieval battlefield. Each session will allow time for questions from the online audience similar to the talks programme with which members are now familiar.


09:45: Log in.

10:00: Conference Opens, Welcome and Housekeeping. 

10:15: Dr Thom Richardson - Mail and Plate Armour.

11:15: Graham Evans - Edgcote, the Source of the Problems.

12:30: Lunch break.

13:00: Panel Discussion - Dr Sophie Ambler, Dr Matt Bennett, Professor Anne Curry, Graham Evans discuss numbers on the medieval battlefield.

14:00: Dr Dan Spencer - Gunpowder Weapons in the Wars of the Roses

15:00: Mike Ingram - Northampton 1460

16:00: Conference Wrap-up.

16:30: Conference Closes.

Without the costs of residential facilities, we have been able to  cut the price to £25 per person, barely a quarter of the original day rate.
