Constables, Charters and Kent: a MEMS collaboration with Kent Archives

Kent Archives U269/O342

MEMS is delighted be collaborating with Kent Archives in organising an exciting event on 22nd and 23rd May 2023 to welcome significant new additions to the Archives’ collections.

In 2022, Kent Archives received some ‘new’ medieval material with shared early modern provenance, reflecting on the history of Kent and of its study in the seventeenth century. This mini-conference is the first time these items will be on display in their new home and that they will have received scholarly discussion. On Monday 22nd May, from noon, we will be in Maidstone and on the morning of Tuesday 23rd May in Canterbury when we will also be seeing related material in both our own Special Collections and in Canterbury Cathedral Archives.

Speakers will include MEMS’s own Prof. Kenneth Fincham, Dr Ryan Perry and Dr Sheila Sweetinburgh.

The event is free and open to all but spaces are limited so do reserve yours by contacting the email addresses listed on the flyer.
