29th May - 1st May 2022

The Medieval Canterbury Weekend, organized by the Centre for Kent History & Heritage at Canterbury Christ Church University, returned in 2022 with a programme of 18 talks and its hallmark guided visits. Among the speakers who came to Canterbury for the May Day weekend were Dr Tracy Borman, Dr Marc Morris, Professor Caroline Barron and Professor Mark Bailey but also many more. Audiences, therefore, were able to hear from experts about a wide range of topics including who took part in the Peasants’ Revolt, what houses were like in medieval towns, why medieval monsters are exciting and what do we know about the iconic Gough map.

As always, the organisers’ intention was to raise money for the Ian Coulson Memorial Postgraduate Award fund that continues to support postgraduates studying Kent history and archaeology projects. This year we tried a hybrid format and among those taking advantage on the online option were several schools and sixth-form colleges.
