Fortification to Reformation:
The History of York to the 15th Century Adrian College and the University of York’s Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture offer students the opportunity to travel to the beautiful medieval walled city of York to study the early history of York. This is an intensive two-week interdisciplinary course with readings and lectures covering Roman York, Anglo-Scandinavian York, Norman and Medieval York, and Reformation York. In addition to lectures by local scholars and experts, the course includes a service learning project and excursions to significant sites such as York Minster, Ripon Cathedral, the Yorkshire Museum, Lastingham Church, Rievaulx Abbey, Whitby Abbey, Fountains Abbey, Vindolanda, and Hadrian’s Wall. Students live in apartments within the York city walls, within a 5-minute walk to York Minster. This is a wonderful experiential learning opportunity for students interested in Roman, Medieval, and/or Renaissance English history.
