Research in the Medieval Research Centre at Leicester is innovative, wide-ranging and interdisciplinary, covering many specialist disciplines, such as Old and Middle English, Manuscript Studies, the Crusades, and the genetic heritage of the Viking past.

We attract substantial external research grants (more than £1.75 million since 2008) from Research Councils and charities and are always looking to deepen and expand our research base through collaboration and network grants with colleagues in the UK and abroad.
