Description

Anglo-Saxon Studies in Archaeology and History is an annual series concerned with the archaeology and history of England and its neighbours during the Anglo-Saxon period. Volume 13 can be said to be truly interdisciplinary, carrying papers from diverse areas such as place-name studies, art history, historiography and archaeology. A strong theme in this issue is the early Anglo-Saxon period, with a range of papers touching on aspects of migration. Another shared theme is the complexity and multiplicity of meaning in iconography and art, whilst military strategy and military kit take this volume into the Late Saxon period.
