Twenty-nine studies, covering a wide range of themes, present the most up-to-date thinking on the history, archaeology and toponymy of Anglo-Saxon England, with particular attention to Wessex, in honour of Professor Barbara Yorke.
This book, published by Brill, draws together a series of papers that present some of the most up-to-date thinking on the history, archaeology and toponymy of Wessex and Anglo-Saxon England more broadly.
From the identities that emerged in the immediate post-Roman period, through to the development of kingdoms, the role of the church, and impacts felt beyond the eleventh century, the rich and diverse character of the studies presented here are testimony to the versatility and extensive range of the honorand’s contribution to the academic field.
