In detail the subject areas and approaches are very different, yet all are cross-disciplinary and the same texts and artefacts weave through several of them.

The common element is transformation, the Anglo-Saxon ability to rework older material for new times and the necessary adaptation to new circumstances. The papers originated as five recent Toller Memorial Lectures hosted by the Manchester Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies (MANCASS)"--Publisher description."@en ;
