Abstract

This round table discussion has a hybrid format with shorter papers followed by a round table discussion among panellists. The papers on Anglo-Norman and Angevin women will be brief (12-15 minutes each), leaving time for 15-20 minutes of round table discussion among the panellists before entertaining questions from the floor. The subject of this round table is the presentation of archival-based research on 12th-century women, providing context and analysis through dialogue.
