OxNet Seminars Continue to Intrigue

OxNet North East students explored the notion of History with Professor Giles Gasper of Durham University in this year’s third OxNet Seminar.  They discussed the question ‘Why study History?’. They grappled with the difficulty of truly defining The Middle Ages (due to its complexity and broad chronological span) and discussed how to actually find history.  All agreed that a historian needed evidence – be it writing, buildings, artefacts or the physical landscape.
