Event Details

The Middle Ages are often seen as a bloodthirsty time of warriors, saints and kings: a patriarchal society oppressing and excluding women. By digging beneath the surface Janina Ramirez reveals that the Dark Ages were anything but. Based on 5 years of original research sweeping across 1,000 years she re-examines extraordinary women like Hildegard of Bingen, casts a new light on females like King Jadwiga and using recent discoveries finds lost individuals like the Loftus Princess and the Birka Warrior Woman. Revealing new material for the first time at Gloucester, she paints a vivid and evocative picture of the lives and influence of women on the medieval world.
