Monday 3 June
General interest lecture- ‘Making an Impression: Seals as a resource for Historical Research’
In medieval Britain, men and women throughout society possessed seals; many thousands of these survive in archives, museums and private collections. Most seals are small, and quite often they are damaged, but all reveal information about their owners, whether individuals or institutions, and offer glimpses into lives which might otherwise be lost. The Exploring Medieval Seals project, at Aberystwyth University, is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project’s aim is not only to share advanced research and expertise with a variety of audiences, including teachers and schoolchildren, archivists and curators, heritage professionals and local historians, and in fact anyone with a keen interest in the Middle Ages, but to explore with interested parties the ways in which our research can help in developing new agendas in education, research and the presentation of the past to as wide a public as possible. You are advised to book.
