Never has the term Dark Ages been more relevant than to the study of the early medieval child. Although there is now detailed information on Roman and late medieval families, childhood in the Anglo-Saxon child is presented in this study of the archaeological evidence such as excavated cemeteries and settlement sites, as well as the more limited documentary sources.
