The Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society

Since 1863

For everyone interested in Yorkshire's past

About us

Aims and activities

The Medieval Section provides a lecture programme, an annual Journal ‘Medieval Yorkshire’ and, occasionally, other activities designed to appeal to those interested in the period spanning from Anglo-Saxon times to the sixteenth century.

We meet several times a year in locations throughout Yorkshire to visit medieval sites and to hear experts speak on the archaeology, history, architecture and landscape of the area in the Middle Ages.

Themes for past day schools have included industry, farming, crafts, town and country, trade, monasteries, arms manufacture, transport, site preservation, land tenure, the rich and the poor.

To keep up to date with our events and activities follow this link to the Medieval Studies Section Blog on Facebook



There are two categories of membership:

  1. Member of our parent body, the Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society, who can join the Section at a special rate
