Articles

This blog is all about medieval history, a place where I’ll be sharing articles about fascinating stories from the Middle Ages.  Ask two historians to define the Middle Ages and you’d probably get two different answers.  So, for the sake of drawing some lines in the sand, I’ll be focusing on the period from 476 (the fall of the Roman Empire) up until 1487 (the end of the Wars of the Roses).

Read all about the key people, places and events that have shaped our past here.

Get in touch

You’ll find articles on pretty much anything from the medieval period on this site.  I’m always open to new ideas, so if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you.  I doubt if I’ll be able to accommodate every suggestion, but I’ll certainly take them into account.

About me

I have an avid interest in history and would call myself a ‘keen amateur historian’. I studied history academically with the Open University and for most of my life I have studied history mainly for fun.  If you contribute to the History forum called ‘Historum’ you may have come across me posting as SilasMarner.

A new article every week. Check back and never miss a post from this blog.

Future articles to look out for:

  • Once a month look out for an article in my series covering the Fall of the Plantagenets and the Wars of the Roses.  You can read the first article in the series here.  Links to subsequent articles in the series are provided at the foot of each story.
  • Also once a month, you can look out for an article covering folklore, mysteries, myths, and legends from the medieval period.  I recently completed a series of articles covering the Robin Hood story.  You can read the first article in the series here.  Links to subsequent articles in the series are provided at the foot of each story.

Plus, look out for other stories covering a range of topics from the medieval period (476 – 1487 CE).
