Module overview

This module examines the major social, economic and cultural developments that took place in England during the period between c. 800 and c. 1100 AD. It makes use of evidence from diverse disciplines, including the study of documentary, archaeological, architectural and numismatic sources. The module examines the unification of England and the creation of a sophisticated governmental structure based upon a social hierarchy that was increasingly formalised. It considers the developments that took place in towns, the Church and rural settlement in response to the new conditions. External factors such as viking raids and migration will also be taken into account.
