The fields of study covered by the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (ASNC) are: Anglo-Saxon England, Scandinavia in the Viking Age, the Brittonic-speaking peoples (Brittany, Cornwall, Wales, Pictish Kingdoms and northern British Kingdoms) and the Gaelic-speaking peoples (Ireland, the Isle of Man and western Scotland).
We also study five vernacular language and literature subjects: Old English, Old Norse, Medieval Welsh, Medieval Irish and Insular Latin. The study of insular manuscripts using palaeography and codicology is also offered to our undergraduate and graduates students.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
