About the Authors
  • This third edition of Peter Hunter Blair's classic account of Anglo-Saxon history includes a completely new introduction written by Simon Keynes. The first two chapters survey Anglo-Saxon England: its wars and invasions, people and kings. The remaining chapters cover specific aspects of its culture: Church, government, economy and literary achievement. Blair uses illustrations and a wide range of sources--documents, archaeological evidence and place names--to depict the period realistically. (Keynes has also prepared a thoroughly updated bibliography.) Second Edition Hb (1977): 0-521-21650-8 Second Edition Pb (1977): 0-521-29219-0
