Bibliography

There is no need to recreate here the excellent bibliography available on the Electronic Sawyer website (currently under revision by Rebecca Rushforth in Cambridge). It is worth, however, naming a few volumes as central to the study of Anglo-Saxon charters and history.

  • J.M. Kemble, Codex Diplomaticus Aevi Saxonici, 6 vols (London,1839-48), , the first volume of which contains the first serious (and, in some ways, still the best) attempt to deal with Anglo-Saxon charter diplomatic.
  • W. de Gray Birch, Cartularium Saxonicum, 3 vols and index (London,1885-99)

The modern 'classics' are those editions funded and published by the British Academy. To date the following volumes have been published:

  • The Charters of Abingdon Abbey, ed. S.E. Kelly, 2 vols., Anglo-Saxon Charters vii & viii (Oxford, 2000)
  • The Charters of Burton Abbey, ed. P.H. Sawyer, Anglo-Saxon Charters ii (Oxford, 1979)
  • The Charters of Rochester, ed. A. Campbell, Anglo-Saxon Charters i (Oxford, 1973)
  • The Charters of Selsey, ed. S.E. Kelly, Anglo-Saxon Charters vi (Oxford, 1998)
  • The Charters of Shaftesbury Abbey, ed. S.E. Kelly, Anglo-Saxon Charters v (Oxford, 1996)
  • The Charters of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury, and Minster-in-Thanet, ed. S.E. Kelly, Anglo-Saxon Charters iv (Oxford, 1995)
  • The Charters of St Paul's, London, ed. S.E. Kelly, Anglo-Saxon Charters x (Oxford, 2004)
