1013 Spring 2019 The Normans
Tuesday, 9:40-11:05, April 23

United Christian Parish
Instructor: Stephanie Campbell

This presentation is rescheduled from winter term.  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.
Stephanie Campbell attended the College of William & Mary, where she earned a BA in history and a second BA in medieval and Renaissance studies.
