Course Description

In the view of many historians, the Anglo-Saxon period of English history not only provides the real foundations for all of later English history but covers the most creative period in English history â" politically, socially, culturally, and artistically. This course deals with the extraordinary richness of this remarkable time and with the impact of the Anglo-Saxon period on the Norman period which follows. The class begins with the collapse of Roman Britain in the early 5th century and ends with the collapse of Norman England in the period between 1135 and 1154.

Grading Policy

Grades will be based on a map quiz (10%) and three tests (30% each), one of which may be a take-home test.
