The Material Culture of the Built Environment in the Anglo-Saxon World, second volume of Daily Living in the Anglo-Saxon World, continues to introduce students of Anglo-Saxon culture to aspects of the realities of the built environment that surrounded Anglo-Saxon peoples through reference to archaeological and textual sources. It considers what structures intruded on the natural landscape the Anglo-Saxons inhabited – roads and tracks, ancient barrows and Roman buildings, the villages and towns, churches, beacons, boundary ditches and walls, grave-markers and standing sculptures – and explores the interrelationships between them and their part in Anglo-Saxon life.

Gale R. Owen-Crocker is Professor of Anglo-Saxon Culture at the University of Manchester. She is editor of Working with Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts (University of Exeter Press, 2009).

Maren Clegg Hyer is Associate Professor of English at Valdosta State University (Georgia), and specialises in researching material culture, including textiles and textile imagery, in Anglo-Saxon England.
