Archbishop Robert of Jumieges interests historians of Anglo-Saxon England chiefly for his role in offering the crown to William of Normandy and in the conflict between King Edward and Earl Godwin in 1051–2. Before now, very little was known of his movements after his flight from England that September, but the discovery of an early source placing him in Paris casts new light on his activities. Part 1 examines the source and proposes a date for the event Robert attended. Part 2 challenges current perceptions of his career and offers a new interpretation of its significance in view of his movements in exile.
