HIST 0405 England after the Conquest

This course examines the political, ecclesiastical and social history of England from the Norman Conquest (1066) to the early thirteenth century. This period saw the establishment of Norman rule, which brought England’s elite into a French political and cultural world.  The loss of Normandy and most of the English kings’ other French possessions in 1204 was thus an important rupture.  This era witnessed major developments in economic life, urbanisation, and the expression of Christianity.  Relations with the rest of the British Isles also changed dramatically, and often violently.  The twelfth century also saw a flowering of historical scholarship.
