From Henry III to Richard III

Michael Tunnicliffe

The course examines the period of English history from 1216 – 1485. It will examine the individual reigns of the Plantagenet kings of the 13th and 14th centuries and the competing houses of Lancaster and York during the turbulent years of the Wars of the Roses in the 15th century.  As well as the lives of the kings themselves, the course will explore the social and religious developments of the time including the rise of parliament in the 13th century, the impact of the Black Death in the 14th century and the beginnings of the Renaissance in the 15th century.

Please note: this course is also offered on Tuesdays at Cheadle Hulme Quaker Meeting House under the title ‘The Plantagenet Kings 1216-1485’.
