Anglo-Scandinavian England: Norse-English Relations in the Period Before the Conquest
The papers in this volume contribute to a more precise assessment of the interconnections between England and Scandinavia during the period from the establishment of the Danelaw to the Norman Conquest. The essays fall into three groups of concern: history, myth, and the language of poetry.

Co-published with the Old English Colloquium.
