A Century of British Medieval Studies

Alan Deyermond


This book is a guide to the complete range of medieval scholarship undertaken in twentieth-century Britain: history, archaeology, language and culture. Some of the twenty-nine chapters here focus on changes in research method or on the achievements of individual scholars, others are the personal account of a lifetime's work in a discipline. Many outline the ways in which subjects may develop in the twenty-first century. The book sets British scholarship in its international context and contains useful bibliographies.

Keywords: medieval scholarship, twentieth-century Britain, history, archaeology, language, culture, research methods, individual scholars, personal accounts, British scholarship
