The work provides an overview of Anglo-Saxon sculpture from its tentative beginnings in the seventh century to the Norman Conquest. The author identifies and illustrates the major influences on early English sculpture - the Christian Mediterranean, Merovingian, Carolingian and Scandinavian traditions - and shows how these combined with native English elements to create the particular aesthetic synthesis that is Anglo-Saxon carving in stone.
