The Middle Ages at Sydney University

   Posted by: Dorothea Preis   in News

Visiting Sydney University you might feel transported back to the Middle Ages.  And if you want to learn more about this fascinating period have a look at these courses offered by the Centre of Continuing Education of the University of Sydney.  The lecturer is Yvette Debergue, who holds a PhD from the University of Sydney and is a medieval specialist.

The first is a 4 week course on Art and Architecture of the Middle Ages, covering medieval ecclesiastic and secular architecture as well as medieval tapestries and medieval gardens.    The course starts on 3 May 2012, places are still available.

Yvette Debergue will team up with our branch member Isolde Martyn for a one day event, The Planatgenets, on 30 June 2012.  The course aims to cover the period from Henry II until the Battle of Bosworth.  It should be an interesting day.  I do have, however, certain reservations about recommending books by Alison Weir as course reading.

And to chase away any winter chills, you might like to meet some Notorious Women of the Middle Ages, a course which will commence on 19 July 2012.
