Summary: Thesis: The fate and histories of "Anglo-Saxon" women after 1066


I see my research as primarily a work of discovery history. It aims firstly to identify Anglo-Saxon women in the sources for the period following the Norman Conquest and secondly, to piece together their position in the new Anglo-Norman society. I hope to reveal something of the lives and times of this lost generation of women.

About me:

I studied primarily at the University of Sheffield where I completed a Dual Honours Degree in English Language and Linguistics, following which I trained in Export Marketing and undertook a career in business. When I was made redundant in 2009, I decided to return to my studies and joined the MA in Humanities by Research at the University of Derby.
