Description

Join us and hear from some of the world’s leading experts on King Henry V and his Navy!

We’ve hand-picked a selection of writers and historians to give talks on topics related to King Henry V and the Navy that dominated waters around 15th Century England.

The Writer’s Talks take place on Saturday 15th June at the Medieval Weekend, River Hamble Country Park, Bursledon, SO31 1BH.

Check out times and descriptions below, and read on for short blurbs of our panel of authors & historians.

12:00pm Take a look into the socio-economic conditions of late middle-ages ship-board and coastal communities with Dr Craig Lambert.

12:30pm Learn about the all new Virtual Museum from 3D Designer and Archeologist Grant Cox.

1:00pm An exploration of Henry V’s Navy – its ships, men and operations of war – with Dr Ian Friel. This will be followed by a guided walk by Ian at 2pm.

Grant Cox is a University of Southampton Archaeological Computing (Virtual Pasts) graduate and founder of digital heritage dissemination and reconstruction company Artas Media. Grant has worked on a number of projects, most notably the virtual reconstruction of ship wrecks and surrounding sites, such as the Invincible and the Coronation. Grant has also been instrumental in the digital 3D reconstruction of the Grace Dieu for the Virtual Museum.

Craig Lambert

Historian Dr Craig Lambert is a Lecturer in Humanities at the University of Southampton specialising in late medieval maritime history, with a focus on naval logistics during the Hundred Years War. Craig also examines the socio-economic position (and demographics) of 14th and 15th Century ship-board and coastal communities, and the size, composition and geographical distribution of the late medieval English merchant fleet.

The Writer’s Talks form part of the Saturday opening of the Medieval Weekend, which will celebrate the launch of the Virtual Museum of the Grace Dieu, an interactive virtual reality museum that documents all of the information collected of the course of the two year Road to Agincourt Project marking the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

The event takes place at River Hamble Country Park on the 15th & 16th July. For more information, visit www.roadtoagincourt.co.uk/medieval-weekend-2017/
