Heavenfield Round-up 3: Medievalists at Work

The Medievalists out there must all be incubating new projects because the blogosphere has been a little quiet again for the last few weeks, not that I have helped out much there. Yet, there are hints of these bigger projects in their posts, so lets get right down to it.

Guy Halsall of Historian on the Edge posted a presentation he gave as the York Medieval Lecture this term on Changing Minds around 600 and also posted a draft of a paper he is working on: Officers or Gentlemen? Frankish Aristocracy in the 6th Century Part 1 (of 4 posted).

Karen Jolly of Revealing Words is exploring Cumbria for locations for her novel.

Tim Clarkson of Senchus writes about the queen who inspired Lady Macbeth. On his Govan blog Heart of the Kingdom, Tim writes about hair styles of warriors on the carved stones.

Esmeralda’s Cumbrian History & Folklore has a nice post on the Treaty of Eamont Bridge in 927.

Badonicus is continuing his series on King Arthur- Man, Myth or both? with Part II and Part III.

Not usually part of my medievalist round-up but Kristina Killgrove of Powered by Osteons has her latest Roman Bioarchaeology carnival up.

Carl Pyrdum of Got Medieval looks at ring dances in illuminated manuscripts and urban legends of the plague.

Andy Gaunt of Archaeology and History of Medieval Sherwood Forest looks at the history and use of caves in the forest and about Bestwood Park.

Bamburg Research Project blog writes about the Anglo-Saxon church in the village.

Over at Contagions, I also wrote about how the plague has altered our perceptions of the last 1500 years of history with what historians of medicine call Gothic Epidemiology.

So there you have it, some medievalists at work.
