Overview

Overview

The culture of early Anglo-Saxon England explored from social, economic and ideological perspectives.
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 contributions offer fascinating insights into key contemporary research questions and projects, and into the character and problems of interdisciplinary approaches.
