The Wealth of Anglo-Saxon England

Peter Sawyer

  • Reinforces the argument that eleventh-century England was highly urbanized and had a very lucrative trade with Germany
  • Shows how an abundant and widely dispersed coinage stimulated economic development
  • Makes accessible new developments in the analysis of coin evidence and shows, with examples, how they make possible reasonable estimates of the productivity of mints
  • Casts light on the positive contribution of Scandinavian settlers to the economy of tenth-century England
  • Offers a synthesis of many publications that are not widely accessible
