In the afternoon, a “medieval fair” will be held in the N13 Atrium, where scholars and students will host demo tables centred on medieval-related research fields of study, such as medieval painting techniques, medieval paleography and manuscript restoration, medieval archaeozoology, medieval dresses, medieval maps, medieval herbs and healthcare, the Pomáz archaeological excavation, or medieval archery. These stalls will be supervised by alumni and recent students with similar research topics. Guests who are not medievalists will have the opportunity to discuss the exhibited objects and related questions with these experts, while our students, faculty, and the invited scholars, will have the opportunity to discuss possible career options in this more unofficial setting.
In the evening, a concert will be held in the Nador 15 Auditorium (A), with the participation of Sárkánykönny, a band of musicians who use medieval music both as basis and inspiration.
