The stone sculptures of Anglo-Saxon England

The publication of the ‘Cheshire and Lancashire’ volume of the British Academy’s ‘Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture’ brings this important series closer to completion. The Corpus has significantly increased the number of known Anglo-Saxon monuments. The General Editor, Professor Rosemary Cramp FBA, explains how the Corpus volumes have encouraged debate and set in motion new ways of assessing these sculptures. Then Professor Richard N. Bailey explains the significance of one particular stone – the Bidston hogback – featured in his ‘Cheshire and Lancashire’ volume.
