Professor Vera Evison has made a major contribution to the study of the archaeology of Anglo-Saxon England over a period of more than sixty years. Her publications include four monographs on early Anglo-Saxon cemeteries, as well as a catalogue of wheel-thrown pottery from Anglo-Saxon graves. She is perhaps best known, however, for her wide-ranging studies of early medieval vessel glass, which culminated in a catalogue of the Anglo-Saxon glass in the British Museum.
In this volume Ian Riddler, Jean Soulat and Lynne Keys have gathered together contributions from 25 authors to celebrate the life and work of Vera Evison. From its outset, the editors have sought to place Anglo-Saxon sites and finds within a European framework, drawing in colleagues from France and Germany to echo the wide range of Vera Evison’s academic interests.The subjects extend from the Anglo-Saxon cemetery of Dover Buckland and other newly-discovered cemeteries in Kent to an evaluation of the history and archaeology of the Franks in Belgica II, alongside ethnographic comparisons and funerary trends for cremation burials, studies and reviews of early medieval glass, brooches, antler and iron combs, weaving swords and pendant crosses, as well as a re-evaluation
of finds from older cemetery excavations and a review of recent advances in Bayesian modelling with radiocarbon dating and its application for the early medieval period.
