  • Overview

    The Group 1 module covers the history of Britain from the Norman Conquest to the emergence of the English parliamentary state, limited by Magna Carta, in the fourteenth. Its central focus is on the changing political structures which created single English and Scottish kingdoms, with effective institutions of law and government, and powerful national identities, and a Wales likewise with its own identity, but conquered by England. These developments are put in the wider context of changes in society in a period which saw the commercialisation of the economy, peasant revolts, and a rise in the population (before the Black Death) to levels not seen again until the seventeenth century. The module is taught through a mixture of wide-ranging thematic subjects (on government, society and the economy) and more specific sessions on key periods and events, such as the quarrel between Thomas Becket and Henry II.
