Conversion and Colonization in Anglo-Saxon England is a collection of ten essays by acknowledged experts in the field of Anglo-Saxon studies. Papers range in scope from the conversion of the English to Christianity, to the expansion of Anglo-Saxon culture beyond the British Isles; and from early Anglo-Saxon burial goods to the evidence for and treatment of disease. As the essays in this book show, conversion and colonization in the England of the Anglo-Saxon period were often localized phenomena that registered themselves at different moments, in different places, and in different forms of cultural production.
