Event Details


From the murder of Thomas Becket to the Peasants’ Revolt and the Black Death, we sometimes think of the Middle Ages as a dark, backward and unchanging time, characterised by violence, ignorance and superstition. But we couldn’t be more wrong.

Bestselling historian Ian Mortimer, author of The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England which revealed the sights, sounds and smells of medieval life, shows how between 1000 and 1600 the medieval world was in fact a revolutionary age marking the transition between a warrior-led society and the Elizabethan Age.

The endlessly inventive Ian Mortimer is the most remarkable medieval historian of our time. – The Times
