Beginning with an assessment of Roman influence, Dr Edwards then discusses the themse of settlement, food and farming, craft and technology, the church and art, concluding with an appraisal of the Viking impact.

The archaeological evidence for the period is also particularly rich and wide-ranging and our knowledge is expanding repidly in the light of modern techniques of survey and excavation.”(Amazon)

″Richard Hall became interested in the Vikings as an undergraduate in Ireland, when he worked on the excavation of Viking-age Dublin and wrote a dissertation updating the catalogue of Viking material from Ireland. His doctoral thesis concerned the towns of the English Danelaw, a topic which required a study of museum collections, excavations and documentary sources for the Viking campaigns and settlement. While working for York Archaeological Trust he directed the five-year campaign of excavation known as ‘the Viking Dig’ on the site in Coppergate, York, where the Jorvik Viking Centre now stands. He was responsible for part of the academic input to the centre’s display and was co-author of the Trust’s Viking Ships exhibition in 1987-8. He lectures widely on the Viking age and has published extensively at all levels. He is now Director of Archaeology at York Archaeological Trust. ″ (Amazon)

″The image of the Celt is one of the most emotive in the European past, evoking pictures of warriors, feasts, and gentle saints and scholars. This comprehensive and fully-illustrated book, first published in 2006, re-appraises the archaeology of the Celtic-speaking areas of Britain and Ireland from the late fourth to the twelfth century AD, a period in which the Celts were a leading cultural force in northern Europe. Drawing on recent scientific advances, the book provides a new perspective on the economy, settlement, material culture, art and technological achievements of the early medieval Celts and re-examines their interaction with the Romans and Vikings. Including a full survey of artefacts and archaeological sites, from memorial stones to monasteries, this is essential reading for any student or scholar with an interest in Celtic archaeology, history or culture.” (Amazon)
