Honours Module ME3309 Mediaeval St Andrews visit to MUSA

This week students taking ME3309 Mediaeval St Andrews, the honours module co-taught by Drs Alex Woolf, Michael Brown and Katie Stevenson, visited MUSA to see the collections on the early history of the University. Curatorial trainee Naomi Muir spoke to the group about the display of the objects as well as the history of the collection. Students have the option of writing a small assessment exercise on the Papal Bull of Benedict XIII, which is one of the gems held by Special Collections, or the Mace of the Faculty of Arts, one of three of the finest university maces to have survived from medieval Europe.
