Leeds Medieval Culture and War Conference 2016

War was a constant in the Middle Ages and affected every aspect of life. In recent years studies have moved away from looking at war on its own and instead consider it in relation to its greater cultural context. These novel approaches shed light on new and interesting aspects of war.

This conference pursues these further by exploring the interaction between culture and war in the Middle Ages, as manifested in ideals, representations, and realities.

We will explore these issues in keynote presentations by Matthew Bennett (Royal Military Academy Sandhurst) and Karen Watts (Royal Armouries), 24 papers in 8 sessions, as well as a unique handling session at the Leeds Royal Armouries.
