Dr Caroline Burt
Dr Burt works on late medieval political and social history, specialising in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
Dr Burt's research to date has focused on the reigns of Edward I (1272-1307) and Edward II (1307-27) and on English governance during that period. She is particularly interested in ideas about governance and the practical implementation of royal authority and policy within England as a whole. She has published several articles and most recently a monograph on Edward I with Cambridge University Press (Edward I and the Governance of England, 1272-1307). An article summarising her latest research in Edward II, which offers new perspectives on the reign, was published in 2015, and she is currently working on a major new monograph on English history from 1199 to 1399.
Caroline Burt is available for consultancy.
Dr Burt is very happy to consider proposals for research on thirteenth and fourteenth century British history.
Dr Burt teaches Part I papers 3 and 8 (medieval British political, and social and economic history, 1050-1500), as well as undergraduate dissertations. She also lectures in this field.
