Coat Of Arms Medieval Assignment Pdf


The Anglo-Saxon name Birmingham comes from the family having resided in or around the city of Birmingham in Warwickshire. This place-name predates the Domesday Book and is thought by historians to have evolved from the Old English Beornmundingaham, meaning, homestead of the people of Beornmund.[1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4) Another source claims that the place name's "etymology is involved in great uncertainty. Dugdale, from its Saxon termination, deduces it from the first Saxon lord; while others assign to it an origin of much higher antiquity, inferring that, with more probability, the first Saxon proprietor took his name from that of the town, which they suppose to have been originally 'Bromwych,' from the quantity of broom formerly growing in the neighbourhood".

Early Origins of the Birmingham family

The surname Birmingham was first found in Warwickshire. While the family is generally understood to have hailed from this area, we must look to Staffordshire to find the first record of the name, specifically Peter de Bremingeham who was listed there in the Pipe Rolls of 1170. Gilbert de Birmingeham was listed in the Feet of Fines for Lincolnshire in 1271 and John de Burmyngham was listed in Warwickshire in 1333. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X) The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Bermingeham. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8) The family is just as populous in Ireland as "the noble and warlike family of the Bremichams, earls of Louth, in Ireland were instrumental in assisting Strongbow, Earl of Pembroke, in the conquest of that country. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print. Little Barningham in Norfolk was an ancient family seat. "A charter for a market and a fair was granted by Edward I. to Walter de Berningham, who at that time possessed the manor." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print. William de Bermingham, who attended Edward I. into Gascony, was made prisoner at the siege of Bellegarde in 1297 and his descendant William, who was summoned to parliament by the title of William, Lord Birmingham, in the 1st of Edward III.

KING ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE

 

The legends associated with King Arthur, his Knights of the Round Table, and his legendary court of Camelot have delighted generations of readers.  Modern concepts of chivalry and valor find their roots in these medieval tales of gallantry.  By studying these legends, students can better understand the way real events can inspire legends and how a society's values can redefine the ways in which legends are told. Many of these resources also teach about the Middle Ages.

 

ARTHURIAN CHARACTER NOTES (PDF) 

These notes give background on the historical King Arthur, details on the development of the Arthurian legend, and an introduction to major characters. 

ACTION FIGURE (PDF)

With this assignment students design an action figure based on a character from Arthurian legend.  The action figure must have three features (things that the toy can do) as well as three accessories (small items that come with the toy).  Designing a vehicle and an ad for another toy are also part of the assignment.
