A Study Day: 15 Women Who Shaped Warwick Castle

Monday 27 September
Meet at County Records Office
9.30am – 3.30pm

From the Norman Conquest to the Second World War, the story of Warwick Castle and its Earls was influenced, designed, controlled, even betrayed, by the wives, daughters, and housemaids who lived and worked there.

On this full day’s study, local historians, Aaron Manning and Adam Busiakiewicz, and special guest Melissa Perry, will chart the way women shaped the fate and fortunes of Warwick Castle, the town, and the lives of their husbands, through patronage, politics, dynasty, art and architecture, and rebellion.
