Over a period of nearly six centuries, Anglo-Saxon England grew to become one of the richest, best administered and culturally dynamic kingdoms of Western Europe. This course will explore a fascinating period of English history to try to understand how it developed, its achievements and the challenges it faced. With reference to contemporary sources and archaeology, you will follow this development by looking at major themes, such as kingship and kingdoms, conversion to Christianity and the growth of the Church, art and literature. This course aims to give an interesting, thought-provoking and enjoyable journey through a somewhat neglected period of English history. No previous knowledge of the period is required.
