Product description

Ed. in Association with Manchester Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies. Studies in the Early History of Britain: the Makers of England. General editor: Nicholas Brooks. The reign of King Cnut is here reassessed in the light of modern advances in the application of numismatic, documentary and onomastic evidence to historical studies.

With 28 b/w photographs, 19 figures, 11 tables. The book is bound in paperback, no dust cover, and in excellent condition.
