About this event

UNIVERSITY OF BRISTOL and HISTORIC TOWNS TRUST

‘A Northern Way? The Archbishops of York and Urban Development in the Fourteenth Century’ by Professor Sarah Rees Jones

The lecture will explore the administrative records of the Archbishops of York as a source for the history of Beverley, Hexham, Hull, Ripon, Southwell, and York during the fourteenth century. This was a century of crisis: of famine, war, and plague. The talk will explore the reactions of the archbishops to these events through their interventions in some of the major urban communities of the northern province.

Sarah Rees Jones is Professor of Medieval History at the University of York. A former contributor to the Historic Towns Atlas for the City of York, she is currently the Principal Investigator on an AHRC-funded project that is seeking to make the vast administrative archive of the medieval Archbishops of York accessible to the public online. The project is called ‘The Northern Way: The Archbishops of York and the North of England, 1304–1405’, and you can find out more here: https://www.york.ac.uk/history/research/northern-way/
