The Anglo-Saxon chronicle by Bob Carruthers( Book )

23 editions published between 1912 and 2007 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The so-called Anglo-Saxon chronicle is not one continuous work, but is made up of annals written in the monasteries of Winchester, Canterbury, Peterborough, Abingdon and Worcester. In this volume the records are collated in such a way that there is no unnecessary repetition of material, and the arrangement of the texts follows the editions of J. Earle (1865) and C. Plummer (1892), by permission of the Oxford University Press. For today's reader, the long accounts of the Danish invasions and, later, of the unhappiness of Stephen's reign are probably the most immediately striking passages, but the whole work is full of interest, which is stimulated by the late Professor Garmonsway's introduction, a model of compressed scholarship
