Poem or Literature
I have discovered this book, which I found is a useful summary for the layman of the Anglo-Saxon world in Britain. In a lot of respects I have found all other books, including more comprehensive ones a little bit unsatisfactory as lots of questions I had were not answered. I suspect reading this book on its own may prove unsatisfactory as well e.g. there is very little on place names. So it is a good book but it is probably best read in conjunction with other books on the subject. there is a useful bibliography.
