I’m Dr Leonie Hicks, a medievalist specialising in the history of the Normans. My current project focuses on the way Norman chroniclers used the landscape in their history writing. It examines how they saw it and how we, as medievalists writing in the twenty-first century, view it. The project is very much about the relationship between people, place and the past. This blog is designed to facilitate discussion of those issues both in medieval and modern world.
