Dying and Death in Later Anglo-Saxon England - Paperback

Sunday, January 1, 2012

It's very cheering that Boydell & Brewer are republishing my Dying and Death in Later Anglo-Saxon England (snappy title, I know!) in paperback this year, at a much more reasonable price.
It's already available to pre-order through Boydell or Amazon, but anyone who is coming to the book launch at the Mansion House in York at 2pm on the 16th February, and fancies buying a copy, should know that flyers giving a further discount are going to be available there.
I'd like to think that anyone who reads and enjoys The Bone Thief, and wants to know more, would also find Dying and Death accessible and interesting.

 
There have been a number of good reviews of the book, such as this one from Medical History.

 
Other heart-warming snippets from reviews include:
 
An exemplary study, written in an eloquent and engaging style and with relevance beyond the period with which it is concerned. MEDIEVAL ARCHAEOLOGY
 
A groundbreaking multidisciplinary study. SPECULUM

 
Does more than fill an obvious gap in the current literature: this is not only a necessary book, it is also a very rich and stimulating examination of the subject. EARLY MEDIEVAL EUROPE

 
A cultural study which should appeal to the scholar and student alike. MEDIUM AEVUM

 
Filled with evocative details, unexpected sources, and fresh insights, her book makes substantial contributions to Anglo-Saxon studies, medieval history, and the interdisciplinary investigation of death and dying. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW

 
Lively and interesting. the book is well-written, a pleasure to read and easy to use.[...] This excellent book will have a wide appeal to scholars and to students alike. TOEBI NEWSLETTER
