Thus the short presentation today discussed how the outreach project canada goose canada goose uk black friday outlet uk team of Diane Heath and me, with the help of Harriet Kersey, a doctoral History student (now a post doc), and led by Professor Louise Wilkinson with Faversham Town Council (and sponsored by Swale District Council through their Heritage Grants scheme) worked to produce an exhibition on ‘Medieval Faversham’ that included several workshops for ‘Young Medievalists’ and several talks. This was an extension of Professor Louise Wilkinson’s Faversham Magna Carta 2015 exhibition and my articles on the medieval town, as well as involving further research by the team at archives in Oxford, London, Maidstone and Canterbury.

Today, I underlined the importance of thorough and nuanced research to create an exhibition that explained the complex in language and ways that are applicable to a wide audience that may have little understanding of their town’s history, or the past more generally. I also sought to highlight the value of the interplay between text and image in the production of exhibition materials as a way to engage people of different ages and backgrounds.
