From the Back Cover:

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 articles by 150 contributors, arranged in alphabetical order, describing the people, places, activities 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 the English, c.450-1066', and by a classified index of head-words to facilitate access to the Encyclopaedia itself.

The Encyclopaedia can be consulted for information and bibliographical orientation on points of detail; in addition, its 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. Representing the full breadth of recent scholarly investigation, the volume is the first large-scale work of synthesis and reference in the field since Stenton's Anglo Saxon England (1943) and is likely to become the standard reference on this subject.
