La Normandie avant 1066 : quelques lectures contemporaines (1966-2016)

Abstract : This article offers a retrospective view of the Norman contemporary historiography (1966-2016) since the installation of the Vikings in what became the Duchy until the conquest of England by William the Conqueror. Two items are successively addressed, around a few key words that allow us not to embrace the comprehensiveness of reflection during these fifty years, but to follow a few of their main lines of thought (even if it was not possible to deal with the study and editing of records in details). An initial phase discusses the notions off continuity and discontinuity that have long dominated the concerns of researchers; it also nuances the notions of legacy or inheritance and addresses discussions surrounding the Norman identity. A second avenue examines the influences of the mutationist debate on the historiography of the 1980s-2000s, the new readings allowed by a convergence between history and social studies, and the examination of religious reform movements. The article concludes with Normandy in European history, particularly in the light of the studies dealing specifically with networks.
