Comprehensive guide to the period,
This review is from: The Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Anglo-Saxon England (Paperback)
This encyclopedia contains articles on a huge range of topics - people, places, texts, manuscripts, modern scholars, culture, artefacts - anything, in short, that relates to Anglo-Saxon England. The entries are written by experts in their field, and generally include a brief bibliography related to each topic. It includes some line diagrams of buildings, clothing or objects. This would be an invaluable handbook for students of the history, literature or culture of the period, and the bibliographies make it an almost indispensable reference work.
