At 7pm on Thursday 14th December (via Zoom) BALH are hosting Fiona Edmonds who is Professor in Regional History at Lancaster University. Her book Gaelic Influence in the Northumbrian Kingdom: the Golden Age and the Viking Age won the Frank Watson Prize 2021. Her lecture is entitled ‘Northumbrian institutions reconsidered: three upland communities in medieval Britain’. She will consider the textual record, place-names and archaeological evidence to ask how far we may talk of similarities; and if common features existed, why that was that the case.
