Good translation, if a bit dated.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Anglo Saxon Chronicle: A History of England From Roman Times to the Norman Conquest (Paperback)
As the title says, the translation is quite dated (1823 and 1847 to be exact) with a few edits from 1912 translations. It is still a good translation though, and a good source for medieval essays.
One thing that annoys me about this translation is that it doesn't inform you which Chronicle has been translated. There are 4 chronicles for 1066 in this translation, but it doesn't tell which ones they are. I had to use a lecturers version of the ASC to get this information. The lecturers version, however, was not entirely chronological. It darted back and forth sometimes, and was also quite expensive. At least this version is quite affordable and makes sense.
Hope this helped :).
