Product Description


The larger value of Hooke's work (is) its continual focus on those features of the natural and human-made landscape that provided a sense of coherence and rootedness to the Anglo-Saxons as they demarcated and parceled it out for their own legal purposes... Short of walking the bounds oneself, this is as close as one can get to the landscape of preconquest Warwickshire. SPECULUM Hooke's now substantial body of work has contributed a new understanding, not only of the fine detail of the Anglo-Saxon landscape - the woods and headlands and quarries and streams between which the boundaries pick their way - but of land-management and farming practice.
