Description

This session will present the perspectives of an archaeologist, a historian, and a literary scholar on community in early Anglo-Saxon England (6th–8th centuries). Recent work on identity in the early middle ages has focused on the multi-valent and situationally constructed nature of individual identity. This panel seeks to explore the implications of this recent work for how we understand community in early Anglo-Saxon England. Through a multi-disciplinary approach to this topic, this panel will underscore that the multiple ways in which community can be studied is as varied as the way communities developed and defined themselves in the Anglo-Saxon period.
