958 Winter 2019 The Normans
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, Jan. 30
Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center, Lake Anne
Instructor: Stephanie Campbell

During the 10th and 11th centuries, Normandy was Western Europe’s medieval melting pot, combining Viking, Frankish, and Saxon peoples. The Normans were known for their religious and military zeal, conquering territories throughout the Mediterranean and, perhaps most famously, their neighbors across the English Channel. This lecture will explore the Normans’ Viking roots, their conquests, and their role in the Crusades, along with their contributions to medieval culture and religion, many of which can still be felt today.
