The forty-second volume of Anglo-Saxon England begins with an article which introduces a 'new' Anglo-Latin poet to a modern audience, and ends with an article exploring the activities of a Norman archbishop of Canterbury when exiled from England in the early 1050s. Other disciplines well represented here are palaeography, philology, Old English language and literature, tenth-century diplomacy, and numismatics. Extended treatment is given to the reception in Anglo-Saxon England of a Latin life of St 'gidius, which lies behind the Old English Life of St Giles in Cambridge, Corpus Christi College MS 303. It is also a privilege for the journal to include the first scholarly publication of the recently discovered seal-matrix of a certain 'lfric, presumed to have been a layman who flourished in the late tenth century; the object itself has been acquired by the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Each article is preceded by a short abstract.
