St Ethelbert's Gate at Tombland, Norwich.

Four towns will be examined, all in Eastern England, each with a different story. Norwich was largely swept clear by the Normans in a dramatic exercise of royal authority. Canterbury evolved more slowly and came to be dominated by the Church and the Cult of Becket. King's Lynn was totally invented by the Normans, a planned town that became a flourishing port. Cambridge is that rarity, a town almost squeezed out of existence by the needs of education. There will be a day spent in King's Lynn, which will involve a fair deal of walking and some stairs.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
