Anglo-Saxon England is the only publication which consistently embraces all the main aspects of study of Anglo-Saxon history and culture – linguistic, literary, textual, palaeographic, religious, intellectual, historical, archaeological and artistic – and which promotes the more unusual interests – in music or medicine or education, for example.

Beowulf off the Map by Alfred Hiatt

Numerical Composition and Beowulf: A Re-consideration by Yvette Kisor

Tudor Antiquaries and the Vita Ædwardi Regis by Henry Summerso and Earl Godwine’s Ship by Simon Keynes and Rosalind Love.

A comprehensive bibliography concludes the volume, listing publications on Anglo-Saxon England during 2008.
