About the Authors
  • Contributions to the forty-sixth volume of Anglo-Saxon England focus on aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture and history across a period from the seventh to the eleventh century. The study of a fragment of a tenth-century sacramentary offers new evidence for the role of music in Anglo-Saxon England, while consideration of charter-evidence in both Latin and Old English from Worcester c.870 to 992 sheds fresh light on institutional interaction between the two main languages of Anglo-Saxon England. Two contributions consider Beowulf and its immediate manuscript-context, the first focusing on the spellings of the second scribe, and the next on the later history of the manuscript into the sixteenth century, facilitating its survival to this day. Finally, a detailed study of English landed society before and after the Norman Conquest has resulted in new perspectives on landed wealth in England in 1066 and 1086. Each article is preceded by a short abstract.

    • A collection of original research covering various aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture and history, from the seventh to the seventeenth century
    • Brings together some of the leading academics currently working in the field
    • Covers a broad range of topics, from music in Anglo-Saxon England to the influence of Asser's Life of King Alfred on the tenth-century Welsh poem Armes Prydein Vawr
