This course leads participants through Margaret Beaufort’s life as she appears in the pages and folios of original charters, volumes and documents found in the Archives of St John’s College. By examining the documents she left behind participants will gain a greater understanding of this remarkable woman and the influence she wielded. The highlight of the course will be a visit to the Archive Centre to see these documents up close.

Students must ensure they arrive at Madingley for 09:20am as transportation will be arranged for 09:40 to take students to St Johns College at 09:40am.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
