Daily Life in Anglo-Saxon England, 2nd Edition (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Daily Life in Anglo-Saxon England examines and recreates many of the details of ordinary lives in early medieval England between the fifth and eleventh centuries, exploring what we know as well as the surprising gaps in our knowledge.

Daily Life in Anglo-Saxon England covers daily life in England from the fifth through the eleventh centuries. These six centuries saw significant social, cultural, religious, and ethnic upheavals, from the introduction of Christianity, the creation of towns, the Viking invasions, the invention of "Englishness," and the Norman Conquest.

In the last ten years, there have been significant new archaeological discoveries, major advances in scientific archaeology, and new ways of thinking about the past, meaning it is now possible to say much more about everyday life during this time period than ever before. Drawing on a combination of archaeological and textual evidence, including the latest scientific findings from DNA and stable isotope analysis, this book looks at the life course of the early medieval English from the cradle to the grave, and how daily lives changed over these centuries. Topics covered include maintenance activities, education, play, commerce, trade, manufacturing, fashion, travel, migration, warfare, health, and medicine.
