Other Websites

 

This part of the site is designed to provide you with a variety of links to external websites that might be of interest. There are, for instance, lots of sites on friars, as well as medieval religion, and some are listed here. Other sites make available sources, including information on individual friars, translations of important sources, government records, academic articles and more! Of course, our suggestions are by no means exhaustive, and, as the web is constantly changing, you will find new sites appearing all the time (and old ones disappear).

Where can I Research Medieval History for myself?

  • This country is blessed with some outstanding research libraries and institutions, and we would recommend that, if you want to undertake your own research, you should visit them and make the most of their resources.
  • The first place you should go, however, if you have a keen interest in Norwich Blackfriars or the history of Norwich is the Norfolk Record Office, Norwich (or NRO as it is more commonly known).
  • The NRO collects and preserves records of historical significance for the county of Norfolk and makes them accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. Most importantly it holds the archives of Norwich Blackfriars.

Other places to visit might be:

British Library

The British Library, London, is the national library of the United Kingdom and one of the world's greatest libraries.

National Archives

Increasingly, these records are being put online, making them universally accessible.
