Angus Warren

Angus Warren's picture

Angus Warren specializes in early medieval English literature, history, and art. After receiving his B.A. in Classical Studies from Middlebury College (Middlebury, VT), he pursued graduate work at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, UK). His master’s thesis examined the form, function, and figurative habitat of sea-monsters in Old English and Anglo-Latin poetry and hagiography. His doctoral work turns to the writing of history in pre-Conquest England, assessing how authors from Bede to William of Malmesbury adopted language and imagery from Classical Latin prose to generate a literary myth of the English nation’s descent from Rome. Angus cut his teeth as a palaeographer working in Archbishop Parker’s collection at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and has since gained further experience in libraries across the United Kingdom. A life-long sailor, Angus also maintains an active interest in maritime archaeology, especially the archaeology of medieval ships and port facilities.
