Anglo-Saxon beads are a vital source of information for post-Roman and early Anglo-Saxon periods in Britain, and this book presents the first ever national survey devoted to them. At its core is a classification of the forms, colours and decorative features of all the glass beads that have been recovered through excavation, supplemented by schedules listing both published and unpublished examples with references to their publication and to the museums where they can be studied. The work also includes two essays by Martin Welch, placing the study of glass beads in its historical and archaeological context in early Anglo-Saxon England and suggesting areas where future research should be concentrated. MARGARET GUIDO pioneered the study of glass beads in this country; the material she gathered together has been drawn together and edited by MARTIN WELCH, Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London.
