The Middle Ages are often seen as a bloodthirsty time of warriors, saints and kings: a patriarchal society oppressing and excluding women. Janina Ramirez digs beneath the surface to reveal 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 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 picture of the lives and influence of women on the medieval world.
