Medieval Economic and Social History
Seminar or event series
Cambridge has a strong tradition in the economic and social history of the middle ages, and this seminar has long been at the heart of it. While its focus remains the history of the British Isles, the seminar has recently begun to expand its geographical scope to feature work on the economies and societies of continental Europe and beyond.
