Product Description:

In this large and beautifully illustrated book Paul Mortimer draws on the experiences of re-enactors and modern experimental reconstructions to provide a fresh look at the arms and armour, as well as the culture and beliefs of Anglo-Saxon warrior society in the sixth and seventh centuries. He produces his own typologies of the various pieces of military equipment and discusses construction, decoration and functioning, as well as highlighting some specific fine and/or unusual examples. The latter half of the book discusses factors such as religion, the iconography of more decorative items, burial and kingship to complete the picture of warrior life.
