HIST6201: Europe in the Early Middle Ages, 400-1000
This module is designed to

ages, with particular reference to issues of concern to historians over the
past 10-15 years. The module begins with an outline historical survey to enable
students to identify the major settings, people and places (fall of the Roman
Empire, rise of Islam, Carolingian and Ottonian Empires etc.) and then proceeds
thematically, dealing with developments in a series of subject areas (e.g.
states, religious experience, towns and trade, legal structures and dispute
settlement) over the entire period.
