Product Description

The discovery of the Staffordshire Saxon Hoard has drawn attention to the rich culture of the so-called Dark Ages between the end of Roman Britain and the time of King Alfred.

The articles focus on the kingdom of Mercia and explore the ways in which historians and archaeologists are revealing the origins of the kingdom and local place names, features in the landscape and the political and religious legacies of the British and Anglo-Saxon inhabitants who created the English shires and church. Material culture forms a special feature of this issue, culminating in an exploration of the latest thinking about the Hoard.
