Event Description

Join us for a two-part series on the crusades, one of the most significant and misunderstood events in medieval history. These ideological warriors transformed the political landscape and society of their time.

We will explore the lesser-known aspect of the crusades, which were not just fought against Muslims in the Middle East. The crusades even extended to the ice-covered forests of the Baltic. Through this series, we aim to shed light on the various aspects of the crusades and offer a comprehensive understanding of their impact on history. Don't miss this opportunity to delve deeper into this fascinating topic!

  • Duration: 2 x 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
