Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (ASNC) is a unique course, combining historical, linguistic and literary study of the British Isles, Scandinavia and Brittany during the early Middle Ages. ASNC students discover medieval history while learning one or more languages and reading great works of literature in the original languages. Full details of the structure and content of the course can be found on the University website.
