Medieval and Arthurian



Siân Echard, University of British Columbia


I have created many web pages to support my teaching over the last few years; they have gone up and come down as the courses have come and gone. Some people have asked that I make these pages available on an ongoing basis, so I’m including a set of links below. However, I won’t be updating inactive web pages very often, and I haven’t done much, beyond removing links to old course syllabuses, to break these pages out of the contexts for which they are created—these pages were generally speaking conceived of as being supplementary rather than free-standing. As with all my pages, this material is for educational use only, and some of it is drawn from my ongoing research. Please do not use this material without my permission; you can e-mail me at
