Gens Normannorum – understanding Norman identity through material culture

Gens Normannorum – understanding Norman identity through material culture

Call for papers : EEA 2020, Budapest 26-30 August 2020.

Organisers : Michael Lewis, Alessandra Molinari, Viola Skiba

‘Norse-men’ in origin, the Normans are well known for their exploits abroad (outside France), conquering England, Sicily and parts of Italy, and establishing themselves elsewhere also. Likewise, their material culture is well known being diverse, seemingly embracing – even assimilating – with that of those whom they came into contact with. Henceforth the Normans in England display (on the surface at least) a different ‘cultural signal’ to those that settled in Italy or Sicily for example. So, what extent can we speak of a gens normannorum through the material culture of the Normans across the places in which they lived?    

We invite people to consider Norman identify through material culture in its widest sense, from the relationship of the objects they used to those of the cultures around them, to whether or not it is possible to associate material culture with the Normans specifically. This session is being proposed as part of thinking towards a British Museum exhibition on the Normans, and therefore it is hoped will bring to light new thoughts and ideas that can help interpret objects that might be presented for public display.

Silver and the Origins of the Viking Age

Projet ERC : Silver and the Origins of the Viking Age

Resp. : Jane Kershaw (principal investigator, Oxford), Stephen Merkel, Jani Oravisjärvi

L’objectif est de s’interroger où, quand et pourquoi l’ère viking a commencé, sous l’angle d’une étude interdisciplinaire de l’argent viking. Grâce à des analyses, en particulier isotopiques, sur plusieurs centaines d’artefacts, il s’agira de répondre à des questions telles que la provenance de l’argent obtenu par les vikings,  le moment où cet argent a atteint  la Scandinavie pour la première fois et les raisons qui poussèrent les vikings à l’acquérir.

Archaeologies of the Norman Conquest

Archaeologies of the Norman Conquest is a new research network examining the cultural, social, and political implications of the Norman Conquest through an explicit focus on archaeology and material culture. Its chief aims are to highlight the new insights and nuanced interpretations that archaeology can bring to this fundamental turning point in British history, and to articulate an inclusive research framework for the 11th and 12th centuries that brings together the scientific, humanistic, academic, professional, and public engagement arms of archaeology. It seeks to raise both academic and public awareness of the important role archaeology has to play in understanding this cultural touchstone.

This network is based around a series of three workshops, focusing on the themes of interpretative agendas, methodologies, and heritage and public impacts. Current research is beginning demonstrate that not only is the Norman Conquest visible in the archaeological record at a wide range of social levels and in many aspects of life, but also that if the right questions are asked of the data, the conclusions we can draw from the archaeology often contradict or add considerable nuance to the story of the Conquest told in the documentary record. By providing a forum for the presentation of innovative scholarship and the discussion of new questions, agendas, and research directions, the network will contribute to re-evaluating the long-standing narratives of the Conquest, its process, and its aftermath.

This project is funded by an AHRC Research Networking grant, led by the universities of York and Nottingham, with partnership from Norwich Castle Museum.
