Overview

Overview

The 2006 volume of the Haskins Society features another impressive array of academics addressing the period from Anglo-Saxon to Angevin.
This latest volume of the Haskins Society Journal presents recent research on the Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman, Viking and Angevin worlds of the eleventh and twelfth centuries; topics range from a major reassessment of King Alfred (the last work finished by Patrick Wormald) and examinations of William the Conqueror, Thomas Beckett and Sybil of Jerusalem, to questions of legal testimony, military organization, western geographic knowledge in the middle ages, and more.

Contributors: WILLIAM M. AIRD, NATHANIEL LANE TAYLOR, DAVID BATES, JOHN D. HOSLER, ROBERT JONES, HELEN J. NICHOLSON, BERNARD HAMILTON
