The contents of the forty-first volume of Anglo-Saxon England range across the period from the seventh century to the eleventh, and across the disciplines from Old English and Insular Latin literature to monetary history, ecclesiastical history, manuscript studies, sculpture, and cookery. Collectively, the articles represent the vitality of Anglo-Saxon studies not only in Britain but also in Ireland, France, Germany and the United States of America. Each article is preceded by a short abstract.
