This chapter evaluates that evidence for the connection between Anglo-Saxon England and Ireland can be inferred from discovered Irish metalwork dated around 400 to 800 AD. It discusses the factors that revolutionised the understanding of interactions across the Irish Sea, including excavation of a number of important sites in western Britain and Ireland such as the Dunadd and the Mote of Mark. Current evidence suggests that the experimentation by Celtic metalworkers, beginning in the seventh century, was carried out at secular rather than ecclesiastical sites.
