A Gazetteer of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Scandinavian Sites Lincolnshire


This Gazetteer aims to be a comprehensive guide to places, artefacts and material of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Scandinavian (Viking) stone interest in Lincolnshire. Part 1 provides background material to put the Anglo-Saxons and Anglo-Scandinavians into their historical context, plus a glossary of terms, plans and features of Anglo-Saxon churches, and features relating to crossheads, cross-shafts, grave covers and grave markers. Part 2 identifies 117 “sites” with the aim of enabling the reader to know exactly what they are looking for and where exactly to find it: there is a site index. In alphabetical order each entry is: • Star rated to indicate the quality of what there is to see and how easy it is to find. • Precisely located and described, including measurements and descriptions of decoration where appropriate.
