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. ASSAH offers researchers an opportunity to publish new work in an interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary forum which allows for a diversity of approaches and subject matter. Contributions focus not just on Anglo-Saxon England but also its international context.
Dr Sally Crawford and Dr Katharina Ulmschneider are Senior Research Fellows at the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford. They are the leading experts on the life and works of the eminent Celtic Art scholar Professor Paul Jacobsthal.
