Britain and its Neighbours explores instances and periods of cultural contact and exchanges between communities in Britain with those in other parts of Europe between c.500 and 1700. Collectively, the twelve case studies highlight certain aspects of cultural contact and exchange and present neglected factors, previously overlooked evidence, and new methodological approaches. The discussions draw from a broad range of disciplines including archaeology, history, art history, iconography, literature, linguistics, and legal history in order to shine new light on a multi-faceted variety of expressions of the equally diverse and long-standing relations between Britain and its neighbours. Organised chronologically, the volume accentuates the consistency and continuity of social, cultural, and intellectual connections between Britain and Continental Europe in a period that spans over a millennium. With its range of specialised topics, Britain and its Neighbours is a useful resource for undergraduates, postgraduates, and scholars interested in cultural and intellectual studies and the history of Britain’s long-standing connections to Europe.

Denmark of the twelfth to thirteenth centuries was a place of transitions, and this volume analyzes that period through the lens of the Gesta Danorum of Saxo Grammaticus and other sources. The Gesta defends not only hierocratic conceptions but the Danish hegemonic project in the Baltic - which was grounded in the crusade movements, presented in the Gesta through complex language and imagery about a glorious past brought to bear on the thirteenth century. Also channeled are internal tensions, strengthening the monarchic and ecclesiastical institutions.

In recent years, the field of Memory Studies has emerged as a key approach in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and has increasingly shown its ability to open new windows on Nordic Studies as well. The entries in this book document the work-to-date of this approach on the pre-modern Nordic world (mainly the Viking Age and the Middle Ages, but including as well both earlier and later periods). Given that Memory Studies is an ever expanding critical strategy, the approximately eighty contributors in this volume also discuss the potential for future research in this area. Topics covered range from texts to performance to visual and other aspects of material culture, all approached from within an interdisciplinary framework. International specialists, coming from such relevant fields as archaeology, mythology, history of religion, folklore, history, law, art, literature, philology, language, and mediality, offer assessments on the relevance of Memory Studies to their disciplines and show it at work in case studies. Finally, this handbook demonstrates the various levels of culture where memory had a critical impact in the pre-modern North and how deeply embedded the role of memory is in the material itself.

1066 remains the most evocative date in English history, when Harold was defeated by William the Conqueror and England changed overnight from Saxon to Norman rule. It has long been believed that, according to the Bayeux Tapestry, Harold was shot in the eye by an arrow. M. K. Lawson argues that the tapestry was badly restored in the 19th century, and that we should not necessarily believe what we see. He goes to sources that depict the tapestry before that restoration and reveals some breathtaking insights which will revolutionize the way we view both the battle and the death of England’s last Saxon king.

Tradition places the main action of this Old English poem at Lejre, Zealand (Denmark), and excavations there 1986-88 and 2004-05 have revealed a succession of great halls dated from the middle sixth to the late tenth centuries, and very similar to the one described in eight-century poem. Archaeologists, historians, and literary scholars consider the implications.

"The reign of King Cnut is here reassessed in the light of modern advances in the application of numismatic, literary, documentary and onomastic evidence to historical studies. Demonstrating that 'national' histories must be placed in their European context, this collection of studies adopts both an interdisciplinary and an international approach to examine the figure of Cnut as ruler not only of England (1016-35) but also of Denmark and Norway." "How did Cnut's experience and obligations as king of one country influence his actions as ruler of others? Were his policies consistent or purely pragmatic? What were the economic and social effects of his rule? The studies in this collection serve to illuminate the various influences that operated on Cnut as king and also to explain some of his own actions in a fresh way. It includes both studies of particular types of evidence (charters, coins, runic inscriptions, skaldic verse, relics, names) and of the political policies and events of his rule as overlord of different dominions. It aims not only to inform but also to stimulate further study."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
