History Fringe sessions
As well as our main lectures series, festival visitors can also enjoy our exciting History Fringe sessions. Taking place at Elizabeth II Court, these free 15-minute sessions are hosted by scholars from the University of Winchester and are guaranteed to keep you occupied and informed between talks. History Fringe sessions scheduled for Sunday cover a variety of topics, from prophetic animals in medieval England (15.10–15.25) to sexual exploitation during UN peacekeeping missions (16.35–16.50). Plus, find out how to take care of your soul during the medieval period (11.40–11.55) and explore the history behind an extraordinary mass graveyard for outcasts (13.05–13.30).
