The Making of Kingdoms: Papers from the 47th Sachsensymposium York, September 1996
Tania Marguerite Dickinson, David Griffiths
Oxford University Committee for Archaeology, 1999 - Social Science - 215 pages
Rather than debate location and specifics, this collection concentrates on the interconnections and resonances of kingdoms. Papers were drawn from the 47th Sachsensymposium (York, 1996) and address areas around the North Sea and Baltic. This volume examines general models and research agenda derived from archaeology and history; the search for kingdoms on the ground (control and mobilisation of resources through economic, social and territorial organisations) and identifying kingdoms of the mind. Though many of the papers are thematic, regional interests are still well-represented in pieces ranging from Frisia (Heidinga and Gerrets) to Middle Anglia (Hines) and Denmark (Axboe).
