(Fall 2022)


Section Information for Fall 2022

Let’s take a virtual field trip to a medieval castle, follow Roman roads through the English countryside, learn how the magnificent Lindisfarne Gospels were created, battle Vikings, witness the drafting of the Magna Carta, and chart the rise of aristocracy. This course explores the art, architecture, and archeology of medieval England: beginning with a discussion of the enduring influence of the pre-Christian Celts (creators of the famous Stonehenge monument) and ending with the Tudors in the 15th century. In addition to robust weekly lectures and learning opportunities, this course will feature numerous guest lectures from medieval historians working in England and virtual tours of British museums.
