A vast amount of information has been brought together on all aspects of Anglo-Saxon food and drink. A picture is provided for how food was grown, conserved, prepared and eaten during the period from the beginning of the 5th century to the 11th century. Food production for home consumption was the basis of economic activity throughout the Anglo-Saxon period. Used as payment and a medium of trade, food was the basis of the Anglo-Saxons' system of finance and administration. Information from various literary and archaeological sources has been brought together in order to build up a picture of how food was grown, conserved, distributed, prepared and eaten during the period from the beginning of the 5th century to the 11th century. Many people will find it fascinating for the views it gives of an important aspect of Anglo-Saxon life and culture. In addition to Anglo-Saxon England, the Celtic west of Britain is also covered.
