Review:

This is an admirable collection of papers raising important themes and offering a number of challenges to accepted orthodoxies about the nature and development of the separate areas of early medieval Britain. (Advance praise from an academic in the Department of History, University of Sheffield)

With so distinguished a team of contributors, this book cannot . . . fail to be a success. (Advance praise from an academic at the University of Glasgow)

This book inaugurates a historiography of the early medieval British Isles and suggests some of the ways in which it might be written. The fact that it does so intelligibly and often compellingly is a mark of the quality of the individual contributions and the significance of the collective project in which they are engaged. (Early Medieval Europe 2006)
