Medieval Britain through Historical Fiction
Wednesdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
February 20 - April 24

Explore the highlights of Medieval British history-including the Norman Conquest, the Anarchy, the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland, and the Conquest of Wales-through quality historical fiction. Novels by Morgan Llywelyn, Georgette Heyer, Sharon Penman, and others will introduce the period. With the readings as background, we will discuss topics such as church-state relations, food and drink, medicine, land tenure and military service, law and commerce, and the role of women in society. There is no reading assignment for the first class, but participants may begin reading 1066: The Year of the Conquest. Ten sessions, $210.

Matthew Bird, a law librarian and independent scholar, holds a B.A. in history from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in international politics from the University of Wales.
