Why this course?

Lincoln’s long and fascinating history, along with its range of medieval resources, make it an ideal location in which to undertake an advanced study of the Middle Ages.

You will have the opportunity to develop skills such as palaeography and to utilise historical archives to explore the economic, social and religious history of England. Some modules are supported by the wealth of literary manuscripts at Lincoln Cathedral, including one of only 50 full manuscripts of The Canterbury Tales, and The Thornton Romances, which contains the earliest known accounts of King Arthur’s death.

This programme enables students at the University of Lincoln to gain knowledge from our academics who are leading researchers, authors and editors of books, contributors to international research projects and conferences, broadcasters, conservators and experts in heritage.
