The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Anglo-Saxon England: Second Edition

An essential reference work for this period of English history, The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Anglo-Saxon England is now available in a new edition. It brings together more than 700 articles written by 150 leading scholars on the people, places, activities, and creations of the Anglo-Saxons. It is the only reference work to cover the history, archaeology, arts, architecture, literatures, and languages of England from the Roman withdrawal to the Norman Conquest (c.450 – 1066).

This new edition has been thoroughly updated to include the latest scholarship, and features 52 brand-new entries and a new appendix detailing English archbishops and bishops from 597 to 1066. As in the first edition, the Encyclopedia includes maps, line drawings, photos, a table of rulers of the English from 450 to 1066, and a comprehensive classified index of headwords. With an accessible layout and authoritative content, this is indispensable reading, both for specialists in this interdisciplinary field and for students looking for a thorough grounding in key topics.
