The Mortimer History Society has launched an essay competition with a first prize of £750 and runner-up prize of £300. Winning essays will also be published in the Journal of the Mortimer History Society. The Prize will be judged by a distinguished panel of historians chaired by Professor Chris Given-Wilson.
The purpose of the competition is to stimulate scholarly research into the Mortimers of Wigmore and the medieval Welsh Marches (1066 - 1500). Entries are welcome from a variety of academic disciplines or can reflect a multi-disciplinary approach.
