Abstract

The AHRC has agreed to support an Anglo-Norman Research Group in Scotland to bring together historians of 11th and 12th-century western Europe and the British Isles working in Scotland, and to support and showcase postgraduates studying in the field in Scottish universities. This session is part of a year long programme of events. Its focus is Anglo-Norman Scotland, its place in the wider Anglo-Norman world, and comparisons and contrasts between the two. One paper looks at a border abbey’s experience on both sides of the border through its charters, a second at women’s authority through their charters, and the third at a family with lands on both sides of the border with a unique place in the legal history of both countries.
