Course Description

What exactly was a knight, and what did it really mean? Knighthood meant different things to different people at different times in the medieval and early modern period. This course will look at the different kinds of knights in early medieval England, from the Feudal Knight of the Norman Conquest, the Godly Knight of the Crusades and the Courtly Knight of the twelfth century, using local examples, contemporary accounts, stories and literature, to analyse the similarities and differences. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
