The Heroic Age. A Journal of Early Medieval Northwestern Europe
The Heroic Age is a fully peer-reviewed academic journal.
The Heroic Age focuses on Northwestern Europe during the early medieval period (from the early 4th through 13th centuries). We seek to foster dialogue between all scholars of this period across ethnic and disciplinary boundaries, including—but not limited to—history, archaeology, and literature pertaining to the period.
