The Heroic Age: A Journal of Early Medieval Northwestern Europe invites
submissions for the Summer 2002 issue: Connections and Interconnections: The
British Isles and the Continent 400-1000. The issue is centered around a
session sponsored by The Heroic Age at the 2001 International Medieval
Congress. The issue seeks to investigate the relationship of the British
Isles and the Continent from the withdrawal of the Roman troops in Britannia
in c. 410 to the beginning of the eleventh century. The goal is to explore
the influence that Irish, Anglo-Saxon, Welsh, Manx, Scottish and other
inhabitants exercised on the continent and how that influence may have
affected the development of the islands. Invited are explorations of
theology, history, literature, prosopography (biography), history of ideas,
codicology, art history, and other related subjects.
Submissions should follow the guidelines of the journal that may be found at
members.aol.com/heroicage1/authors.html. There is no length limit, though we
recommend approximately 7000 words. Deadline for submissions should be
December 15, 2001.
The Heroic Age is a free online journal dedicated to the study of
Northwestern Europe from the Late Roman Empire to the advent of the Norman
Empire. The Heroic Age is a peer reviewed, academic journal. Please direct
questions, comments and submissions directly to the issue's editor L. J.
