This analytical catalogue of sculpture from the historic counties of Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire provides a new perspective on the artistic achievement of the late Saxon kingdom. The volume includes individual pieces of the highest quality such as the Bradford-on-Avon and Winterbourne Steepleton angels or the newly discovered figures from Congresbury. Most of the monuments were carved at a time when Wessex art was at its zenith in the tenth and eleventh centuries, a formative period for English cultural identity. This volume sets the sculpture within an historical, topographical and art-historical context, highlighting the close links with contemporary styles in manuscripts and metalwork. Full photographic records of each monument present many new illustrations unique to this volume. An indispensable research tool for all those interested in the early medieval world, this volume is also an authoritative aid for local historians.

Review:
...a remarkable achievement, a further tribute to the organisational drive and rigorous scholarship of the author, coupled with the now very experienced editorial skills of Derek Craig. (Isabel Henderson, Journal of Ecclesiastical History)

...a very valuable tool for research into Anglo-Saxon England (David Benedict McCulloch)

In this excellent volume, Professor Cramp and the Corpus team have produced another work of reference that will inform scholarship for decades to come. It should find its way quickly onto the shelves of many medieval archaeologists. (Medieval Archaeology)

...excellent. (Early Medieval Europe)

A great virtue of the Anglo-Saxon Corpus is the provision of such amazing half-tones which together with the text will really assist future research by scholars who may not have direct access to the often dispersed and fragmantary material. (Journal of the British Archaeological Association)

Overall the volume is a most important accomplishment: a new and up-to-date account of the artistic achievement of the late Saxon kingdom is now obtainable... It will become the resource for scholars working in the early medieval period and a valuable aid for local historians for years to come. (Nick Stoodley, Southern History)

both the presentation and content of the volume are outstanding (Howard Williams, English Historical Review)
