History of the Crusades

The course offers students the opportunity to study the crusading expeditions to the Holy Land and within Europe during the period 1090 to 1450. It is a self regulated year of further study, and provides a preparatory year for PhD candidates. It gives a thorough grounding in research skills and methods, theoretical concepts and the techniques of conducting and writing up an independent research project. Consisting partly of taught courses and partly of independent research, it draws together expertise in medieval history and archaeology to offer a challenging and flexible programme of study.
