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.
For up-to-date information on Medieval Section events and activities go to the Medieval Section Blog.
There are two categories of membership:
- Member of our parent body, the Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society, who can join the Section at a special rate
- Member of the Medieval Section only
Subscriptions are due on the 1st January each year and include a copy of ‘Medieval Yorkshire’
As a registered charity, the Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society is eligible for the Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer you can at no extra cost to yourself make every pound you subscribe worth an extra 25 pence.
Details of subscription rates and the Gift Aid can be found on the Membership page.
