This second edition of The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Anglo-Saxon England is a major reference-work covering the history, archaeology, arts, architecture, literatures and languages of England from the Roman withdrawal to the Norman Conquest (c.450 - 1066 AD). The second edition maintains the interdisciplinary approach, accessible style, and broad-ranging coverage of the first edition, with some 40 additional entries and the new appendix 'Archbishops and Bishops.'
