The culture of early Anglo-Saxon England explored from an inter-disciplinary perspective.
A stimulating contribution to the field of Anglo-Saxon studies. MEDIEVAL ARCHAEOLOGY
A mind-stretching read. NOTES AND QUERIES

The papers contained in this volume, by leading researchers in the field, cover a wide range of social, economic and ideological aspects of the culture of early Anglo-Saxon England, from an inter-disciplinary perspective. The status of `Anglo-Saxondom' and `Englishness' as cultural and ethnic categories are a recurrent focus of debate, while other topics include the reconstruction of settlement patterns; social and political structures; farming in medieval England; and the spiritual world of the Anglo-Saxons. As a whole, the contributionsoffer fascinating insights into key contemporary research questions and projects, and into the character and problems of interdisciplinary approaches.

Dr JOHN HINES is Reader in the School of History and Archaeology atthe University of Wales, Cardiff.
