Thegns in the Danelaw: a case for Scandinavian usage of the term in the 10-11th century England

Paper given by Denis Sukhino-Khomenko

Delivered at the ‘Viking World: Diversity and Change’ conference, University of Nottingham, 02 July 2016

This presentation puts a special emphasis on the historiographical situation and suggests a novel methodological approach. It also addresses the possibility of the Old English influence upon the Old Norse in the usage of the word ‘thegn’. Following further research, it proposes the Danelaw as a possible contact zone rather than a region of confined Scandinavian influence.

Denis Sukhino-Khomenko is a PhD student in History at the University of Gothenburg (Department of Historical Studies) under the supervision of professor Henrik Janson and professor Lars Hermanson.

    I beg your pardon that intervened ... I understand that question. We will consider.

    In your place I would have received otherwise.

    I do not understand the reason for such a stir. Nothing new and different judgments.
