about this item

This volume of the Haskins Society Journal brings together a rich and interdisciplinary collection of articles. Topics range from the politics and military organization of northern worlds of the Anglo-Norman and Angevin worlds in the twelfth and thirteenth century, to the economic activity of women in Catalonia and political unrest in thirteenth-century Tripoli. Martin Millett's chapter on the significance of rural life in Roman Britain for the early Middle Ages continues the Journal's commitment to archaeological approaches to medieval history, while contributions on Ælfric's complex use of sources in his homilies, Byrhtferth of Ramsey's reinterpretation of the Alfredian past, and the little known History of Alfred of Beverly engage with crucial questions of sources and historiographical production within Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman England. Pieces on the political meaning of the Empress Helena and Constantine I for Angevin political ambitions and the role of relics such as the Holy Lance in strategies of political legitimation in Anglo-Saxon England and Ottonian Germany in the tenth century complete the volume. Contributors: David Bachrach, Mark Blincoe, Katherine Cross, Sarah Ifft Decker, Joyce Hill, Katherine Hodges-Kluck, Jesse Izzo, Martin Millett, John Patrick Slevin, Laura Wangerin
