9781898281511: Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds: Princely Burials in the 6th and 7th Centuries

Stephen Pollington is well known for his many works popularising scholarship and archaeology on Anglo-Saxon England. Here he turns his attention to probably the most famous aspect of early Anglo-Saxon culture, the spectular burial mounds, of which Sutton Hoo is the best known example. Here Pollington presents a detailed gazetteer of all known barrow burials across England including the latest findings such as the chamber burial at Prittlewell. Information regarding excavation, contents, dating and skeletal remains is accompanied by photographs and plans of the finest sites. The opening half of the book uses this information to outline the evolution of the barrow burial, its Germanic context, the symbolism of the burials and the contents of the tombs, and their physical construction. Old English and Norse literary references to the mounds are contained in appendices.
