Interpreters of Early Medieval Britain

Portada
British Academy, 2002 - 565 páginas
This collection of biographies celebrates twenty-eight outstanding scholars, women and men, all late Fellows of the British Academy, who pioneered and developed the study of the early British Isles in the period 400-1100. The range of expertise covered includes language and literature (Old English; medieval Irish and Welsh; Scandinavian), history (Scandinavian; Anglo-Saxon, including the study of diplomatic and place-names), archaeology, art history and palaeography. The memoirsalso reveal the personalities of these individuals, and each is accompanied by a photographic portrait. Professor Lapidge's introductory essay sets in context the formative achievements of these scholars in the development of medieval studies in the twentieth century.
