Women of 1000 AD, by Meg Hyland

Meg Hyland

MSc, University of Edinburgh

Discussion Questions

  1. What are the benefits for medievalists of learning about what was going on in the Americas at the same time? What are the drawbacks of bringing the Americas under the “medieval” umbrella? Consider the existing archaeological periodizations of the Americas as well as the effects on Native peoples today.
  2. What does historical reconstruction art offer that more traditional academic output might not? What compromises must an artist make that a historian writing an article or book might not have to think about or might not accept?
  3. How are medieval women and historical women of colour represented in art you’ve been exposed to, whether in public art, pop culture or textbooks?
  4. Looking through the stories on this website, did anything surprise you about the options women had open to them or the roles women could play in their societies?
