Anglo-Saxon/Irish Relations before the Vikings

Ewan Campbell

British Academy

This chapter examines the interaction between Anglo-Saxons and Gaels in Scotland and considers how a post-colonialist perspective can contribute to a discussion about interaction between peoples from what are now present-day England and Scotland. It suggests that the picture of Anglo-Saxon/Gaelic interaction in Scotland revealed by archaeology is complex. This is because of the evidence concerning the use of Anglo-Saxon goods on high-status sites in western Britain and the presence of a variety of processes in metalwork.

Keywords:   Anglo-Saxon, Scotland, post-colonialist perspective, England, archaeology, western Britain, metalwork
