Northumbrian institutions reconsidered: three upland communities in medieval Britain
When & Where
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.
