Anglo-Norman Studies XLII - Proceedings of the Battle Conference 2019, Hardback Book

Anglo-Norman Studies XLII - Proceedings of the Battle Conference 2019 Hardback

Description

The wide-ranging articles collected here represent the cutting edge of recent Anglo-Norman scholarship.

There is a particular focus on historical sources for the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and especially on the key texts which are used by historians in understanding the past.

There are articles on Eadmer's Historia Novorum, Dudo of Saint-Quentin's Historia Normannorum, the historical profession at Durham, and the use of charters to understand the role of women in the Norman march of Wales.

Other contributions examine canon law in late twelfth-century England, and Angevin rule in Normandy in the time of Henry fitz Empress.

The Old English world is also represented in the volume: there is a fresh investigation into Harold Godwineson's posthumous reputation, and a new interpretation of the reign of Aethelred the Unready. S. D. CHURCH is Professor of Medieval History at the University of East Anglia. Contributors: Emma Cavell, Catherine Cubitt, John Gillingham, Mark Hagger, Fraser McNair, Charles C.

Rozier, Nicholas Ruffini-Ronzani, Danica Summerlin, Ann Williams
