Starting again

I'm really excited to be starting my second summer of research with the Laidlaw Foundation Leadership program over the next five weeks. This summer I'm focusing on how women interacted with the religious world in pre-conquest medieval  Wales. If you're interested in my musings on medieval women in the secular sphere, you can read my blogpost from last summer, 'Women, Linen and Gender in the Cryaith Hywel Dda'.

MPhil student , Jesus College, Oxford

Geraint Morgan is originally from Pencoed outside Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr (Bridgend) in South Wales and is a MPhil candidate in Mediaeval History at Jesus College, Oxford. Prior to that, he completed his undergraduate degree in Mediaeval History at the University of St Andrews, having arrived to read Geography. His principal interest is in understanding how medieval people perceived their environments. Whilst his work to date has mostly focused on pre-conquest Welsh cultural and social histories, he is keen to work transnationally and collaboratively. Whilst an undergraduate at St Andrews, Geraint completed a Laidlaw Research project focusing on the role of women in High Medieval Welsh society.
