Reassessing Anglo-Saxon England - 1997 Reprint Summary


Reassessing Anglo-Saxon England - 1997 Reprint by Eric John

Eric John is one of the most distinguished and provocative of Anglo Saxonists. This new and original analysis is the fruit of thirty years os scholarship and therefore has something of the nature of a testament. Mr John seeks to make use of social anthropological insight to understand the type of people the Anglo-Saxons were and sets them, unusually, in the European context. He starts at the beginnings of English society, looks then at Anglo Saxon pagans, Mercian hegemony, English politics in the ninth century, the West Saxon conquest of England, holiness and hubris, the restoration of learning, the ruin of the House of Cerdic, the northern Empire and the avoidance of chaos.
