About Me

Dr. Ilana Krug received her B.A. in English Medieval Studies, History, and Classical Archaeology from Brandeis University (1996), M.A. in Art History from Rutgers University (1999), and second M.A. and PhD from the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto (2000, 2006). She specializes in late medieval England, particularly fourteenth-century English social, economic, political and military history, and broadly investigates the impact of war, natural disasters, taxation and corruption on the peasantry. She has published articles focusing on the social and economic effects of war logistics in the opening years of the Hundred Years’ War, as well as on the use of honey in military medicine, and is presently working on an interdisciplinary book dealing with the role of honey in medieval England.
