Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lucidly presented, and in a form to look simple, there is in this one index alone a vast array of information. Who needs this book? Anyone with an interest in medieval England will find much of value in it. The non-specialist reader could find many new delights. The Anglo-Saxon specialist will appreciate both the wealth of detail and the succinct generalities. The level of authority assembled here is impressive and reassuring." Times Literary Supplement

"If you are only going to buy one general reference work to supplement the books dealing with your particular area of interest, then you could do no better than this." Widowinde

"This volume is a major achievement of extensive and durable value. All students of Anglo-Saxon England, at whatever level, will wish to have it at hand." English Historical Review

"This is a great addition to the works of reference available to students of Anglo-Saxon England at every level: one never opens the book without learning something." Notes and Queries

"This volume provides an eminently authoritative and up-to-date guide to the ever-developing field of Anglo-Saxon studies. It will be welcomed as a valuable basic research tool by Anglo-Saxonists of all levels of experience requiring assistance and bibliographical direction on particular topics. It will also be a boon to non-specialists seeking reliable information about an unfamiliar subject-area. The Encyclopaedia will be an essential and much-consulted addition to all basic reference collections of books on Anglo-Saxon England."

"Lapidge, et al. have compiled a unique storehouse of knowledge, a synthesized compendium of classic and contemporary research from a wide array of interdisciplinary fields within Anglo-Saxon and medieval studies ... In addition to graduate students, undergraduates at senior level respond well to this volume. The encyclopaedia provides a base, a place for students to research; rather than coming to class with vague or generalized knowledge, the students come back equipped with issues that probe them into discussion and further investigation." H-Net Reviews

"Blackwell Publishers have filled an important gap in the reference section with this first major reference work solely devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Anglo-Saxon England circa 450 to 1066." Canadian Journal of History
