Offers an excellent foundation for research. GERMAN HISTORICAL INSTITUTE BULLETIN

With this well-curated work, Hines and IJssennagger have opened a door to further comparative and cross-disciplinary investigations of the Frisians. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW

A fine collection of learned work spanning history, historical linguistics, legal history, archaeology, runology and palaeography...The editors should be commended for bringing together such an excellent array of scholarship. ARCHAEOLOGICAL JOURNAL

There is much to recommend in this rich collection of essays. By shedding new critical light on the problems and complexities associated with `Anglo-Frisian' identity and its place within the wider maritime North Sea world, it will certainly fulfil its stated aspiration to stimulate a new generation of research and thinking. HISTORY

The editors point out in the preface that studies on Frisia can sometimes be overspecialized and constrained. This volume is certainly broad in scope, and several papers offer new insights or new interdisciplinary connections. SPECULUM

Makes a valuable contribution to this history of the North Sea region, especially the relationship between Anglo-Saxon England and its near continental neighbours. CURRENT WORLD ARCHAEOLOGY

The scholarship on display in this volume is of the highest quality, but attention must also be given to the book itself, which is one of the most beautiful I have ever had the joy of holding. SEHEPUNKTE

The volume is to be praised for its interdisciplinarity: while some papers fit cleanly into archaeology, history, or linguistics, most draw on material from several disciplines to examine a question that is beyond the scope of any one. It is well-edited and amply illustrated. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW
