Medieval History: Words, Words, Words

CC-Roman Soldier

This Interest Group will look at three examples of written historical records that come from a wide span of history. The Vindolanda Letters were written by soldiers near Hadrian's Wall, the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle was started by Alfred the Great, and the Magna Carta was prepared for King John in the thirteenth century.

All these materials provide information on both daily life and national events. The existence of such irreplaceable writing provides information of weighty value. However, these CALL sessions will view history with a light heart, a touch of humour, and a variety of instructional approaches.

Time:1:00 - 3:00 PM
Dates:Apr 12, 19, 26, 2024
Where:in person at cSPACE, Marda Loop Room 310
