We explore the written, visual and material culture of the Anglo-Saxons from the Roman withdrawal in the 5th century until the Viking upheavals of the mid-9th century. We discuss finds such as the Sutton Hoo and Prittlewell burials and the Staffordshire Hoard, alongside artworks including the Ruthwell Cross, the Franks Casket, the Lichfield Angel and the Vespasian Psalter, all set in context using historical and literary sources.
