The Celtic Frontier: Sources (HIH3110)

30 credits

This module will focus on the sources for studying all aspects of the impact of the Normans on the British Isles between 1066 and 1215. A variety of primary sources will be used to examine the processes of conquest and assimilation.  Writings of both conquerors and conquered are used and will include correspondence, ethnography, satire, chronicle, poetry, prophecy, and charters.  Texts may be from Latin, French, English, Welsh and Irish origin. We welcome students from other disciplines; however you will require at least 90 credits in History at level 1 and/or level 2.  You must take this module in conjunction with HIH3111, The Celtic Frontier: Post-Conquest England and its Celtic Neighbours: Context.
