Shadow Agents of War Workshop (4 June 2019, Raeburn Room, Old College, Edinburgh)

This workshop will build on some of the questions raised in the June 2018 workshop on ‘Women and War’ co-organised by Prof. Bowd and Dr Cockram: http://research.shca.ed.ac.uk/www-workshop/. Participants will discuss the humans and other animals sometimes overlooked by historians of war, highlight relevant sources, and map out productive methodologies and historiographical approaches which can help to transform our understanding of pre-modern war. Topics will include doctors and heralds, refugees, armourers and gun-makers, amateur spies, peasant militia, and engineers.
