Castles: landscapes of power


Organised jointly with the Medieval Section of the Yorkshire Archaeological Society and held on the 16-17 May at the Yorkshire Museum, this conference had a variety of papers focusing on recent castle studies and included day trips to Sheriff Hutton Castle or the castles of York.

Three papers from this conference were subsequently published in Volume 167 of the Archaeological Journal:

  • Robert Higham, Castle Studies in Transition: a Forty Year Reflection
  • Shaun Richardson, A Room with a View? Looking Outwards from Late Medieval Harewood
  • Peter Brears, Wressle Castle: Functions, Fixtures and Furnishings for Henry Percy ‘The Magnificent’ fifth Earl of Northumberland, 1498‒1527
