The Heroic Age
#1
Quote:The Heroic Age is a fully peer-reviewed academic journal.

The Heroic Age focuses on Northwestern Europe during the early medieval period (from the early 4th through 13th centuries). We seek to foster dialogue between all scholars of this period across ethnic and disciplinary boundaries, including—but not limited to—history, archaeology, and literature pertaining to the period.

Looks fascinating, so I figured I would share it with you all.

Looks interesting. Along with Ancient Civ., I was also interested in late empire Europe of the 3rd -5th century. It tends to be greatly overlooked by scholars. But after that period I sort of lost interest, over and above the basic course requirement.

I'll check it all out. Thanks Tait.

I agree, John.

I've been addicted to the 5th through 8th centuries myself, especially concerning the British Isles. There was a ton of interesting stuff in the form of the invasions of the Saxons, Angles, and Jutes, along with the really *dark* age of Europe in general in which many kingdoms rose and fell yet we know little of them.

This offers some serious study of the matter you mentioned there. I recommend this book.

Stephen Oppenheimer's book does something that other works overlook. He takes Ice Age society into account, and this naturally includes Doggerland and the free flow of genes across a solid land bridge prior to the rising oceans following the last glaciation. Without this the Brits would not have such close genetic ties to the mainland.

English is generally regarded as a Germanic language, since the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes were Germanic tribes. Of course, there was the train wreck that combined English with Norman French after the Battle of Hastings in 1066; but even the Franks were considered originally to be a Germanic tribe. I don't know how English could be thought to be a Scandinavian language. I see little evidence that Norwegian or Swedish has much in common with English, other than some Greek and Latin roots.
