Greetings! My name is Devon Bealke, and I study medieval European history. I specialize in medieval warrior cultures and masculine identities in the years between 800 to 1100. The Vikings' military activity abroad during this period interests me most, and I seek to understand how Scandinavians fought with, were transformed by, and in turn contributed to Christian Europe. My most recent research focused on the continuity of Norse masculinity and warrior identity in Normandy to the year 1050.
