The Middle Ages are still all around us in the shape of thousands of churches, castles and houses; a vast array of letters, court records and other documents allow us a fascinating view of the everyday life that went on in and around these buildings, at all levels of society, between 1066 and 1500. During this course we will explore the evidence and discover what life was like in this period.

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
