  • Description
  • Author Information
This book offers a lively guide to the evidence of archaeology, history, language and literature for the cultural history of Anglo-Saxon England. The book is not intended to narrate the history of England from the fifth century to the Norman Conquest in 1066, but rather to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the conditions within which that history was made. The approach is thematic, covering all aspects of Anglo-Saxon life, from the climate and geography of England during the period, through discussions of economic development and social structures, to religious life and achievements in art and architecture.

The book draws on the latest scholarly thinking to provide up-to-date syntheses of all the key areas of Anglo-Saxon studies, yet it does not presume any prior knowledge of readers. The Anglo-Saxon World will be the ideal starting point for anyone interested in this distant yet vibrant period of the past.
