Overview

Lincoln has a long and fascinating history and is home to a wealth of medieval resources, making it an ideal location in which to undertake an advanced study of the Middle Ages.

Students are able to learn a range of research methods used within medieval studies and develop skills such as palaeography and Latin. They are also taught how to utilise historical archives to explore the economic, social, and religious history of England, and the wider Mediterranean world. Some modules are supported by the wealth of literary manuscripts at Lincoln Cathedral, which holds one of only 50 full manuscripts of The Canterbury Tales, as well as The Thornton Romances, which contains the earliest known accounts of King Arthur’s death.
