Summary 'The Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Anglo-Saxon England is a major reference-work covering the history, archaeology, arts, architecture, literatures and languages of England from the Roman withdrawal to the Norman Conquest (c.450 - 1066 AD). Drawing on contributions by scholars of international standing, the book comprises a series of some 700 artists by 150 contributors, arranged in alphabetical order, describing the people, places, activites and creations of the Anglo-Saxons. The articles are illustrated by maps, line-drawings and black and white photographs; the book is accompanied by a comprehensive table of the 'Rulers of England, c.450 - 1066', and by a classified index of head-words to facilitate access to the Encyclopaedia itself." -- back cover.
"The Encyclopaedia can be consulted for information and bibliographical orientation on points of detail; in addition, the accessible style and layout make it ideal for browsing by readers interested in aspects of Anglo-Saxon England outside the range of their own specialism." -- back cover.
