Food in Anglo-Saxon England tells the story of what people ate and drank in England before the changes that have made our diet so sophisticated, varied, and paradoxically, homogeneous. Only very high-value goods such as spices and wine were imported into England at this time, so people were dependent upon native foods. This extensively illustrated book paints a vivid picture of the Anglo-Saxon diet, and includes recipes and a reconstruction of a typical Anglo-Saxon meal.

From the Publisher:

Food in Anglo–Saxon England tells the story of what people ate and drank in England before the changes that have made our diet so sophisticated, varied and, paradoxically, homogeneous. Only very high–value goods such as spices and wine were imported into England at this time, so people were dependent upon native foods. This extensively illustrated book paints a vivid picture of the Anglo–Saxon diet, and includes recipes and a reconstruction of a typical Anglo–Saxon meal.

Debby Banham is a higher education teacher and researcher, and specializes in medicine, diet and agriculture in Anglo– Saxon England.
