Abstract

This panel takes an interdisciplinary approach to cultural memory in the continuities and change across three kinds of cultural contact event: the 5th-century Adventus Saxonum, the conversion to Christianity, and the Norman Invasion, and explores the nature and impact of these events on different aspects of society and culture, especially as it relates to public display, identity, power, and rights.
