    The essays in this book use the nine-line poem known as “Cædmon’s Hymn” as a lens on the world of Bede’s Ecclesiastical History. A cowherd who is given a divine gift, Cædmon retells the great narratives of Christian history in the traditional form of Anglo-Saxon verse. An immense amount has been written about this episode, much of it concentrating on the hymn’s significance in the history of English literature. Relatively little attention has been paid to what the story of Cædmon and his hymn might tell us about the material as well as the textual culture of Bede’s world. The essays in this collection seek to connect “Cædmon’s Hymn” to Bede’s material world in various ways. Each chapter begins with the hymn and moves from the text to the worlds of scientific thought, settlements and social hierarchy, monastic reform, ordinary things, and others. The connections explored here are a sampling of the material concerns this one text, “Cædmon’s Hymn,” raises.Contents: “Convention, Context, and Transformation: Sources, Analogues, and Parallels for Cædmon’s Hymn and Story,” Daniel P. O’Donnell “Literary Contexts: ‘Cædmon’s Hymn’ as a Center of Bede’s World,” Scott DeGregorio “Cædmon’s Created World and the Monastic Encyclopedia,” Faith Wallis “All Created Things: Material Contexts for Bede’s Story of Cædmon,” Allen J.

    A stimulating contribution to the field of Anglo-Saxon studies. MEDIEVAL ARCHAEOLOGY A mind-stretching read. NOTES AND QUERIES The papers contained in this volume, by leading researchers in the field, cover a wide range of social, economic and ideological aspects of the culture of early Anglo-Saxon England, from an inter-disciplinary perspective. The status of `Anglo-Saxondom' and `Englishness' as cultural and ethnic categories are a recurrent focus of debate, while other topics include the reconstruction of settlement patterns; social and political structures; farming in medieval England; and the spiritual world of the Anglo-Saxons. As a whole, the contributions offer fascinating insights into key contemporary research questions and projects, and into the character and problems of interdisciplinary approaches. Dr JOHN HINES is Reader in the School of History and Archaeology at the University of Wales, Cardiff.
