Abstract

In recent years there has been a renewal of interest in chronicle writing, its purposes, and the underlying assumptions that informed it. In this session we propose to examine two important chronicles – Walsingham’s and the “Scalachronica” – considering the insights brought by new editions, and, more specifically, the chronicles’ coverage of war.
