Summary
  • This book examines the emergence of the Normans, their characteristics as a group, and their various achievements in war, culture and civilization. --From publisher's description
  • "This book examines the emergence of the Normans, their characteristics as a group, and their various achievements in war, culture and civilization." "The Normans were a product of history rather than a natural ethnic or regional group. This book explores what they believed made them a distinct people and how they constructed their identity. Marjorie Chibnall examines the enigma of the Northmen who first settled around the Seine estuary and built a principality that took their name and became the springboard for wider expansion and the conquest of England. The book moves on to study the rise of Normandy, and the integration and influence of other groups including the Saxons, the Franks and new Scandinavian leaders. The Normans' remarkable warfare and maritime successes are revealed in detail including their conquest of England, infiltration of Wales and Scotland, and assimilation in Ireland; and their campaigns in the South of Europe including southern Italy and the Mediterranean region. The book also examines the development of Norman culture, the writing of their own history, Norman myth, and their achievements in bringing together various racial and cultural elements to form a single people."--BOOK JACKET
