Products description

Hilda Ellis Davidson classic study of Early Medieval swords.

This book is an invaluable exploration of the significance of the sword as symbol and weapon in the Anglo-Saxon world, using archaeological and literary evidence. The first part of the book, a careful study of the disposition of swords found in peat bogs, in graves, lakes and rivers, yields information on religious and social practices. The second is concerned with literary sources, especially Beowulf.

Softcover, 286 pp., 4 b/w ill., 116 line drawings.
