AEthelbald and Offa: Two Eighth-Century Kings of Mercia. Papers from a Conference held in Manchester in 2000. Manchester Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies

David Hill, Margaret Worthington

In these sixteen papers, from a conference held by the Manchester Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies in 2000, some well-known names approach the reigns of Aethelbald and Offa from a range of perspectives. Archaeology, landscapes, histories and coinage are used to discuss the nature of Mercian kingship; the use of violence; the patronage of nunneries; the legends of Offa and his legacy; the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and works of literature; Mercia and East Anglia; the urban landscape; Offa’s Dyke; military obligations. The final three papers focus on the iconography and historical context of 8th-century coins and recent archaeological coin discoveries. Contributors:
