For more information on the work of the Trust, please see our about page.

To mark the first forty years of the Trust’s activity, we have established a Ruby Appeal to help raise funds that will allow us to continue our work for many years to come. The donations raised will support research grants and the publication costs of books and articles, allowing us to achieve our objective of supporting researchers and students and making cutting-edge scholarship on the later middle ages accessible to all. In 2025, our ruby anniversary, we will also put on a programme of events to celebrate all that the Trust has accomplished over the last four decades.
