Battlefields Trust Study Day

It’s 2020 and you’re warmly invited to our East Anglia Regional Study Day! This is our fourth one and it’s on Saturday 29 February 2020 at the Cedars Hotel, Stowmarket, Suffolk, IP14 2AJ starting at 10.30 am with coffee/tea available from 10.00.

Our speakers include Dr Sophie Thérèse Ambler (FRHistS, FHEA Lecturer in Later Medieval British and European History at Lancaster University) who will be talking to us on Simon de Montfort and the Battle of Evesham (1265).

We are very pleased to welcome back Dr Harry Sidebottom, author of the Warrior of Rome novels and Fellow and Director of Studies in Ancient History at St Benets Hall, and Lecturer in Ancient History at Lincoln College, who will be talking on the Late Roman Army and the East Anglia Saxon Shore forts.

And for those of you who missed our study day on the Battle of Fornham Dr James Barnaby has very kindly agreed to talk to us about the Campaign of 1173 building up to the actual battle. And as ever Trust Development Officer Julian Humphrys will be with us, to talk on the work he’s been doing around the Battle of Hastings, and answer questions on the work of the Trust.

We also want to take this opportunity to seek members’ views on future Trust activities in East Anglia.
