History, archaeology and the Norman Conquest

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter places the contributions to this volume in the context of recent research on the Norman Conquest by historians. It reveals that since the 1990s historians have become increasingly interested in the social and cultural aspects of the Conquest, which are issues that resonate with archaeologists. It highlights examples of archaeological research which offer important insights into the Norman Conquest, and which show both what changed and, just as importantly, what did not. The chapter concludes that archaeology has important contributions to make to the study of the Norman Conquest, both its impact and how it fits into a broader 11th- and 12th-century context.
