Overview

A novel introduction to Anglo-Saxon culture and archaeology via a sequential collection of frequently asked questions, organised by themes such as buildings, clothing and appearance, kingship, religion, warfare and Sutton Hoo, as well as many more. Questions range from the purely factual (Did they wear jewellery?), to the more analytical (Why were there so many separate kingdoms?), and the controversial (What was Offa's Dyke for?). This is good fun and easy to dip into, and I for one am glad that at Anglo-Saxon Books at least "What is a peplos dress?" ranks as a frequently asked question.
