Anglo-Saxon/Irish Relations before the Vikings

David Griffiths

British Academy

This chapter examines discoveries of pre-Viking material that have occurred in sand-dune-dominated coastal margins and evaluates whether they are indicative of pre-Viking trade in the British and Irish Islands. It explains that sporadic occurrence of early medieval metalwork, glass, and pottery in these locations largely lacks contextual support and that this raises a number of interpretive problems. The chapter also provides some thoughts about Anglo-Irish economic contact during the mid-first millennium.

Keywords:   pre-Viking material, sand-dunes, coastal margins, pre-Viking trade, British Islands, Irish Islands, Anglo-Irish
