[This podcast is also available via iTunesU, through the 'Historic Royal Palaces' Podacast. In addition to Dr Huscroft's lecture there is a bit at the beginning where Dr Megan Gooch discussed money more generally. Sadly, the Q&A session has been omitted which was particularly enjoyable.]

Jewish Women's Archive:

- Elisheva Baumgarten, ‘Medieval Ashkenaz (1096-1348)’, Jewish Women’s Archive, online encyclopedia, available online at http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/medieval-ashkenaz-1096-1348 accessed on 5 June 2016.

[Not specifically about England but provides good level of European context.]

- Cheryl Tallan and Suzanne Bartlet, ‘Licoricia of Winchester’, Jewish Women’s Archive, online encyclopedia, available online at http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/licoricia-of-winchester accessed on 5 June 2016.

[As people who who know me will know, Licorica is one of my favourite women from history and this provides a good introduction to her life.]

- Cheryl Tallan and Emily Taitz, ‘Entrepreneurs’, Jewish Women’s Archive, online encyclopaedia, available online at http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/entrepreneurs accessed on 5 June 2016.


[Not specifically about England but provides good level of European context with an entry relating to Licoricia of Winchester.]

[This is also available to download via iTunes via the 'National Archives' podcasts.]

Paula Kitching, 'Jewish Britain' (published 31 March 2013).

[Membership appears to be necessary; unable to verify.]

Pinchas Roth, 'The Rabbinic Culture of Medieval England' (26 November 2012).

[This is the final of three separate lectures under the title 'Forgotten Paths of Medieval Halakah Explorations in Medieval Rabbinic Culture', all of which are well worth a watch but this is the one which relates specifically to England.],

Pinchas Roth, 'Medieval English Rabbis - Image and Self-Image, Making Early Middle English Conference, Keynote Lecture (1), 23-25 September 2016 (given 23 September 2016).

[Membership appears to be necessary; unable to verify.]

Miri Rubin, 'The Sherman Lectures, [University of Manchester]' (2014).

[While not relating specifically to England, all of these lectures contain material which applies to England, directly or indirectly. Also, it would be impossible to have a blog on medieval Jews without a plethora of references to Miri Rubin so here's the first of many.]
