Modules

This module provides a substantial grounding in the research resources and methods appropriate to interdisciplinary Viking and Anglo-Saxon studies. Teaching takes place during an intensive field trip, which includes a series of half-day workshops; students can participate in the Vikings for Schools programme, creating lesson plans or reports as part of their assessment. The workshops introduce students to a variety of approaches to the study of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, including runology and name-studies. Students will also be given bibliographical training which will be assessed by an annotated bibliography and book review. The field-trip allows students to discover a range of material and linguistic evidence relevant to the study of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, and to understand the importance of interpreting the evidence within its landscape setting.
