About the Course
In this course, Professor Rory Naismith (University of Cambridge) provides a detailed overview of what England was like in late Anglo-Saxon England. In the first module, we look at the king and kingdom of 11th-century England to assess how the kingdom was run. In the second module, we turn to look at how late Anglo-Saxon England actually functioned, before in the third module taking a closer look at its social structure. In the fourth module, we turn to look at the landscape of Anglo-Saxon England and how it was organised on the ground. Then, in the fifth and final module, we shift focus to look at the economy and trade in Anglo-Saxon England.
