Heavenfield Round-up 2: A Medieval Miscellany

St Cuthbert, Durham Cathedral

Its been a little quiet in the medieval blogosphere lately. Good thing some bloggers are making up for the rest of us! Lets start off with a new blogger…

Dr Karen Jolly has begun a new blog called Revealing Words that looks like it will focus on the tenth century Northumbrian community of St Cuthbert and Anglo-Saxon material culture. Check it out, she has several posts up over the last week or so.

Bamburgh Research Project updates us on some of their finds in Bamburgh village.

Keeping with the tenth century, Jonathan Jarrett of A Corner of Tenth Century Europe writes about being a little upset with Michel Zimmermann’s omissions in his massive tome.

Curt Emanuel, the Medieval History Geek, updates us on his quest to conquer Late Antique Christianity.

Andy Gaunt of Archaeology and History of Sherwood Forest writes about the Archbishop of York in Sherwood Forest.

On Contagions, I wrote about efforts to map malaria in Anglo-Saxon England.

Guy Halsall of Historian on the Edge posted a huge list of translations of Late Antique sources that he will be using for his next book on the Worlds of Arthur.

Carl Pyrdum of Got Medieval has kept up his vow to post Thesis Thursdays and the latest looks at Geoffrey’s artistry in creating Arthur’s pedigree and his latest medieval marginalia.

Clas Merdin has a post on Carn Cabal, the burial site of Arthur’s dog.

Esmeralda’s Cumbrian History and Folklore has posts on a local Cumbrian god.

    Thanks for the mention, Michelle! That’s a fascinating list. Fab that you’ve found that post on Arthur’s dog, as I’d investigated folklore about black dogs called ‘cappels’ in Cumbria before I was told of the link with Arthur.

    It’s astonishing just how many ‘local’ gods appear on Hadrian’s Wall; Cocidius was just one of them.
