The Art of War: The Hundred Years' War in Twenty Objects

Lecture by Dr Janina Ramirez, given at the University of Oxford on September 26, 2013

This lecture will examine one of the longest wars in history, fought between England and France from 1337 to 1453. The series of bloody battles, including famous events like Crecy and Agincourt, bridged the enormous cultural, intellectual and social developments that saw both nations move from the medieval world to the modern. By scrutinising twenty objects, from skulls to manuscripts, paintings to buildings, this lecture will bring to life, not just the battles, monarchs and knights of the time, but also the atmosphere and artistic climate of this important period when nations were redefined.
