Early Anglo-Saxon England - 10 credits (HS2307)

The end of the Roman province of Britain and the creation of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms are two key features of this formative period of British history. The apparent sharpness of the transition from Roman to English worlds is a matter of intense modern debate. This module focuses on the archaeological and, to a lesser extent, historical evidence for the Anglo-Saxons c. 400–650 AD.
