We are one of the largest and most diverse concentrations of medieval and early modern studies in the world. A versatile ensemble of academics, curators, students, practitioners, and volunteers, we cover a comprehensive range of areas from Late Antiquity to the late eighteenth century, with a global range from the Silk Road to the Anglo-Saxon and Viking North.
We promote the global standing of Durham University’s research, and its museums and collections, by initiating, co-ordinating and supporting networks, programmes and projects, and lectures and workshops for both specialists and the wider public. As the academic hub for Durham’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, we champion a framework for rigorous research, impact, and dissemination, in order to strengthen the global understanding and appreciation of one of Europe’s great Palatinates.
Our Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies is the academic hub for research on Durham’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
