Women, status and power in medieval England | 19th June

SMA-Woman-dictating-to-man-British-Library-Folio-E-IVf.307
What was it like to be a woman in medieval England? What control did women have over their own lives and how did they wield power over others during times of conflict?

These are just some of the questions that will be explored when the Society for Medieval Archaeology’s 60th anniversary annual conference, titled ‘Women, Status and Power in Medieval Society’, is held in Lincoln this summer.

Hosted by the University of Lincoln, the conference will take place at The Collection Museum, Lincoln, on Friday 30th June and Saturday 1st July 2017.

It will bring together specialists from a wide range of disciplines to explore the status of women in medieval society, comparing and contrasting evidence from archaeology, history, art history and literature.

Papers being presented will cover almost 1,000 years of history, spanning the 7th century through to the 15th century. By exploring women’s lives through Anglo-Saxon, Viking, Norman and medieval times, researchers hope to determine whether the ways in which women were able to exercise power in their own right changed over time and why.
