British Academy

John Michael Wallace–Hadrill's career was marked by a series of distinctions, notably an Oxford D.Litt. in 1967, his election to the British Academy in 1969, and his CBE in 1982. He would also later hold two prestigious chairs, in Manchester and Oxford. It is, however, through his publications that he is best known. The first of these appeared during his first years at Merton. The earliest article was a piece for the Manchester Guardian, on ‘Alfred the Great, 849–899, his European setting’. Although a slight piece, it already announced concerns that would recur throughout his work: Alfred would receive attention in Early Germanic Kingship. More important was the insistence on seeing English history in a Continental context.
