Gregory Rebecca, The minor and field-names of Thurgarton Wapentake, Nottinghamshire

Gregory Rebecca, The minor and field-names of Thurgarton Wapentake, Nottinghamshire, (dir. P. Cavill, J. Baker, University of Nottingham)

En cours depuis 2013/In preparation since 2013

Résumé/abstract :

My project involves collection and anaysis of minor names in Thurgarton Wapentake. I hope to be able to analyse these names in order to glean information about a number of different areas of interest including: the dialect of Nottinghamshire and naming elements specific to the region; the languages spoken in the area, with an emphasis on Scandinavian-infuenced vocabulary and pronunciation; land-use; and the process of enclosure and its effect on naming. My initial sources of data have been the Tithe and Enclosure Awards from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. However, I will also be making use of maps and documents from both earlier and later periods.

Matveeva Elizaveta, Reconsidering the tradition: the Odinic hero as saga-protagonist

Matveeva Elizaveta, Reconsidering the tradition: the Odinic hero as saga-protagonist, (dir. J. Jesch, University of Nottingham)

En cours depuis ?/In preparation since ?

Résumé/abstract :

My project centres upon the representation of late Icelandic saga characters that are connected with Odinic motifs, and are usually based upon an earlier tradition of depicting a mortal hero consecrated to Óðinn. The major examples of such characters include Sigmundr, Sinfjötli and Sigurðr of Völsunga saga that goes back to Eddic poetry, and the eponymous kings and their champions in Hrólfs saga kraka and Halfs saga ok Halfsrekka. The aim of my thesis is to look at the perception and interpretation of these traditional storylines and their pagan theme in saga narrative of the Christian era, from both literary-critical and historical points of view.

Van Renterghem Aya, Runica Manuscripta

Van Renterghem Aya, Runica Manuscripta, (dir. J. Jesch, University of Nottingham)

En cours depuis 2014/In preparation since 2014

Résumé/abstract :

My research investigates the perception of runes and the runic alphabet by medieval scribes by examining their use of the script in manuscripts and the practice of copying manuscript runes between the ninth and the twelfth century. I include both Old Norse and Anglo-Saxon runes, analysing their appearance and possible connections in insular and continental manuscripts. I am interested in the runes within and outwith their respective traditions. I will therefore take a detailed look at the transition from epigraphical to manuscript runes, the spread of the runica manuscripta tradition, and the significance of finding both types of runes in the same manuscripts. With this study I hope to determine how runic material was perceived, why the medieval scribe or scholar felt the need to use a relatively uncommon or even archaic alphabet, and how this affects the idea of runic literacy.

Whitehouse Katherine, A study of the impact of Viking settlement on South Yorkshire

Whitehouse Katherine, The ‘Viking Gap’: a study of the impact of Viking settlement on the area now known as South Yorkshire, (University of Nottingham)

En cours depuis 2014/In preparation since 2014

Résumé/abstract :

My research is a multidisciplinary study into the impact of the Viking settlement on the areas around and between the city and towns of Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. This area, previously part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, is now called South Yorkshire and many studies focus on its industrial history. In using historical, linguistic and archaeological sources I aim to bring out a rounded history of the area in the Viking Age. The area sits between several areas of Viking settlement (York and the Five Boroughs) and in completing my research I hope to fill in the ‘Viking Gap’ in our knowledge.
