A panel of experts on the late medieval era will gather for a Study Day hosted by the Northern Dales Richard III Group. The all-day event is open to all and will be opened by Kim Harding, Chair of the Northern Dales group, speaking on “The College of Richard of Gloucester at Barnard Castle”.
Dr Sandra Pendlington will be examining the political and spiritual influence of the Scottish saint much favoured by Richard III, St Ninian; Professor Richard Gameson of Durham University will be revealing aspects of the “Pigments of C15th Illustrators”. The keynote speaker is author and historian Annette Carson, member of ‘The Looking for Richard Project’ which led the discovery and reburial of Richard’s remains in Leicester: Ms Carson will be exploring the complicated political manoeuvrings of the Year of Three Kings (Edward IV, Edward V and Richard III) in her talk, “Six Months in 1483.
Kim Harding explained, “Our Study Days are incredibly popular and open to all members of the public: we’re delighted to welcome a wealth of experts who will be speaking on medieval topics that can appeal to anyone, fascinated by history, by art or by the intriguing mysteries of Richard III’s life and reign.”
The event is open to all, with tickets £25 (£20 full-time education) and buffet lunch for £5, available from Kim Harding – 01833 637018 firstname.lastname@example.org
