Anglo-Saxon Studies generates its fair share of healthy argument and controversy. This volume provides the latest thinking of established scholars from every area of the discipline. Anglo-Saxon literature is dealt with in relation to the Old English Bede and Ohthere's Report to King Alfred. Ecclesiastical matters are covered in papers on the archbishops of Canterbury, and on Wulfstan of Worcester, as well as in several individual studies of minsters and abbeys. Legal issues are examined in relation to crime and to pagan practices. Subjects as diverse as queens in ninth century Wessex and coinage in the Danelaw are dealt with alongside land tenure and the role of women. The post-Conquest period is represented by studies on the Bayeux Tapestry, Ramsey Abbey and other Fenland monasteries. Contributors include Janet Bately, Peter Sawyer, Audrey Meaney, Janet Nelson, Pauline Stafford, Paul Szarmach and Ann Williams.
