Medieval Materialities

Midlands Hub

Medieval Materialities provides a hub for the study of medieval material culture from the Midlands. Following our first M4C interdisciplinary dialogue day at Lichfield Cathedral in May 2022, we are pleased to present the work of Midlands doctoral students on Lichfield’s manuscripts and stonework, as well as reflections on medieval liturgy and performance practice.

The first publication from Medieval Materialities is available here, and you can access individual articles below.
