A collection of essays dealing with the history and archaeology of Northern Europe in the middle ages. It looks at Anglo-Saxon England, at its contacts with Francia and Scandinavia, and at the impact of the Norwegians and the Danes on the place-names of the British Isles. Two papers deal with the history of women as recorded in runestones, and as evidenced by law suits of the medieval period.

Reviews

This Festschrift [has] unity in its variety: as well as the richness of the individual chapters, a pervading sense of excitement in the reinterpretation of old sources and the harnessing of new ones makes it enjoyable to read from cover to cover. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
