Anglo-Norman Studies XVI

Proceedings of the Battle Conference 1993

Edited by Marjorie Chibnall

Papers in Anglo-Norman history including new research on music, the Bayeux Tapestry and Domesday studies.
Papers on a very wide range of subjects include, for the first time, one on music, on changes in English chant repertories in the eleventh century; book migrations are examined over the same period, and one of the two papers on the Bayeaux Tapestry looks at changing representations of the "burgheat". There are important papers on law and church administration and the relations of Normandy and England with other regions. The development of Rouen is compared with that of Paris; William the Conqueror's relations with Blois and Champagne are discussed; papers on the frontier with the Scots and on Rhys ap Teudur, king of Deheubarth are included. Domesday studies, chronicles and poetry are also represented with new research.
