As my students and I make last-minute preparations to depart for our study-abroad in England, two recent posts remind me of the purpose of these courses and why it’s so fabulous to be studying medieval-early modern British literature in Great Britain.
First, the beginning of a series “debunking” popular misconceptions about the Middle Ages. Stay tuned for more from this blog.
Second, the story of a new medieval archaeological find in Gloucester. There’ve been quite a few of these in recent years, including the Staffordshire Hoard, which we probably will not get to see.
