SCIENCE AND MEDICINE IN THE INSULAR MIDDLE AGES
The research network Science and Medicine in the Insular Middle Ages (SMIMA) is a high-impact cross-disciplinary project that traces the reception and transmission of scientiﬁc and medical knowledge in the Insular Middle Ages, namely Britain, Ireland and Iceland (including Norway and Denmark), during the period 750-1550. The network focuses on the strong links between these islands, which are not isolated or insular, but are rather cultural milieux that are deeply embedded in continental Europe.
