Hanging Bowls and Their Contexts: An Archaeological Survey of Their Socio-Economic Significance from the Fifth to Seventh Centuries A. D.
`This volume is principally the same' as the author's 1988 London PhD thesis. In it she concentrates on the hanging bowls found in context, in graves dated to the sixth and seventh cents on mainland Britain; this amounts to a catalogue of some 78 sites, and a collection of objects that seems to attract endless discussion. The newest parts seem to be the discussion of the dating of the contexts and of the socal significance of the bowls.
