Exeter Medieval Seminar Series

The Exeter Centre for Medieval Studies runs a well-established seminar series.  Its spring programme includes a number of events that should also be of interest to early modernists.  Seminars are Tuesdays 4-5:30 in Queen’s MR3 unless otherwise specified.  Wine is served after the seminar.  All are welcome.
