Surveying three centuries of dramatic religious, political and cultural change in England, this scholarly catalogue extensively documents some 300 diverse works (including coins, gold and silver jewelry, illuminated manuscripts, stone carvings, textile fragments and artifacts of finely worked leather, wood, bone and metal) dating from the arrival of Christian missionaries in 597 to the death of Alfred the Great in 899. Seven essays tracing the profound transformations in Anglo-Saxon culture over the period are accompanied by some 20 additional texts that individually discuss the specific art forms represented in the show as well as developments in secular and religious architecture.
