Formatted abstract
Within these papers is no place to argue the validity of extrinsic or historical evidence in literary criticism - the student of early English must accept this at an early stage in his work. To obtain a full perspective of this brilliant period of English culture so remote from us the student finds he must accept the assistance of disciplines he once thought remote such as Archaeology, History, Theology and very specialized studies such as Palaeography, Hagiography, and Historical Demography, not to mention those fields in the average student must bow to obvious masters; in uch as Classical or celtic studies.

As a working principle, I have endeavoured to refer wherever possible to works of primary value rather than produce a collection of published 'histories'. In other words, while there are several excellent histories of the pre-Norman period which are invaluable in gaining original perspectives, I have tried to use not only Bede 'at first hand' but also his sources along with other contemporaneous histories.
