Since 1945, the London Medieval Society (LMS) has provided a forum within London for the exploration and appreciation of the many areas of research associated with the Middle Ages. Membership of the LMS is open to interested scholars and students from all scholarly disciplines.
The LMS organises three colloquia each year. At the autumn and spring colloquia, speakers deliver short papers in response to a single theme. Recent themes have included Jerusalem, Games and Sports, Peace, and Medieval Blood. The third colloquium offers an opportunity for postgraduates to present their work and to discuss their ideas with fellow medievalists.
The LMS website provides information about membership and about the Society's forthcoming colloquia. It also includes archive sections documenting the papers delivered at the LMS's colloquia over the last two decades.
The LMS encourages suggestions about all areas of its activity from its members.
