Looking for Documents
« on: December 03, 2019, 11:46:52 AM »
Dear members,
This is a long-shot but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I want to research the late 9th and early 10th century Anglo-Saxon England. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle does not have what I am looking for so I am trying to find other sources. If anyone has any suggestions as to where I might find original (or transcripts of original) documents, I would receive them gratefully.
 Kind regards

I don't know what you are after but charters are often a good source of info: http://www.aschart.kcl.ac.uk/index.html  I hope this works as Cambridge are decommissioning some of their sites.

'English Historical Documents', vol. 1.  500-1042AD. by Dorothy Whitelock.   Is a mine of transcripts of contemporary documents etc.
