Medieval New Year celebrated at UWTSD Lampeter


Last Saturday (March 25th), the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) celebrated the Medieval New Year by holding its first ever family Medieval Day in Lampeter.    ‌


Over 200 people attended the successful public event which included battle re-enactments; medieval mass; medieval music performances and readings of medieval poetry.

Visitors also had the opportunity to try their hand at various Medieval games and crafts as well as experiencing a special Medieval theatre street production of Robin Hood.

During the day, people had the opportunity to hear more about of the range of medieval research projects the University is involved with including The Strata Florida Project; Monastic Wales; Centre for Advanced Celtic Studies; the Royal Commission; the Swansea City Witness and the Newport Ship. 

It was also a chance for the University to highlight its strong reputation for Medieval Studies programmes and to celebrate its role in the teaching of Medieval history.
