OUP/British Academy, Dec 24, 2009 - History - 462 pages
Although there has been much recent interest in the interaction of England and Ireland in the Viking Age, the links between the Anglo-Saxons and the Irish in the period before 800 have been much less studied. This collection of essays provides the first interdisciplinary assessment of these connections. The essays range widely in their scope. Seven papers look at issues of language and literature, legal traditions, and ecclesiastical history. A further ten papers consider the evidence of material culture, through art history and archaeology. This overview of recent advances in the field of Anglo-Saxon/Irish relations will be essential reading for all those interested in early medieval studies.
