About this Book
Anglo-Saxon Keywords presents a series of entries that reveal the links between modern ideas and scholarship and the central concepts of Anglo-Saxon literature, language, and material culture.
- Reveals important links between central concepts of the Anglo-Saxon period and issues we think about today
- Reveals how material culture-the history of labor, medicine, technology, identity, masculinity, sex, food, land use-is as important as the history of ideas
- Offers a richly theorized approach that intersects with many disciplines inside and outside of medieval studies
