In August 2010, the Department will be hosting a Summer School in association with The Sutton Trust. The aim of the Summer School is to give Year 12 pupils an insight into the life of a Cambridge undergraduate - participants stay in a College, attend classes and lectures, and take part in social activities - and it is particularly aimed at those who attend state schools without a tradition of sending students to Oxford or Cambridge. The ASNC Summer School will offer participants the opportunity to learn about the history, languages and literatures taught in the Department and to attend lectures given by leading historians and literary scholars. Students will also get a chance to see Anglo-Saxon and Celtic manuscripts at first hand during a visit to the Parker Library at Corpus Christi College. For more information, see the Cambridge University Summer School webpages.
This blog is written and maintained by members of the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic, University of Cambridge. We study the history, languages, literatures and material culture of medieval Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia.
