The art and craftmanship of the Anglo-Saxons has been much admired, but this is the first book to look closely at the background to the skilful work and the techniques involved in its creation. The author covers the way in which the objects were made, as well as the materials and tools used in the process - all of which are shown in detailed drawings.
Objects explored in this study include brooches, swords, woven materials and buildings, many of which are superbly illustrated in colour.
