An ever-expanding timeline

timeline of Geoffrey including contemporaries

Trying to figure out who Geoffrey of Monmouth might have been like involves, for me at least, researching the past that he wrote about, understanding the cultures of the Welsh, British, Saxon, Norman peoples, exploring the greater events taking place in the 12th century Anglo-Norman world, discovering the people with whom he interacted, and to seek tidbits of what he would have seen and touched.

Researching Geoffrey is a lot like a run-on sentence.

The attached timeline is a beginning that is only organized by years and a couple of font colors. Feel free to look it over.
