Medieval Migrants: On the move in Britain after Rome's Fall

Thu 26 Mar 2015, 18:00 - 19:30

The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH

The early medieval period was one of the great ages of migration. Until recently, though, research has concentrated on men, especially kings and early war bands from across the seas. Join Professor Robin Fleming as she reveals new thinking about migration during the fifth and sixth centuries, exploring how people moved within Britain itself and the impact of these movements on Britain’s female population.
