In the approximately two centuries covered by this course (between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries), there was a rich outpouring of artistic activity embracing both ecclesiastical and secular building, splendidly painted interiors, sculpted fa├žades, metalwork and beautifully illuminated manuscripts. Although bound by a common aesthetic, there was considerable national and regional diversity as the style spread widely throughout Western Europe. Major landmarks in art and architecture date from this time. The cathedral of Christ Church Oxford and nearby Iffley church are reflections of this style and the Ashmolean Museum houses artefacts of the period.
