Course Description

Medieval people travelled much more frequently than normally thought. Thousands left their villages and towns to reach cathedral cities in England. Many ventured further afield to Rome, Jerusalem, or Santiago de Compostela. Famous travellers like Marco Polo and John of Mandeville have left invaluable accounts of their trips throughout the known world. This course will explore the practical and logistical issues of medieval travelling. It will be illustrated by contemporary descriptions of exotic places found in medieval ‘travel journals’.
