Writing the Map of Anglo-Saxon England by Nicholas Howe Writing the Map of Anglo-Saxon England, Hardback (January 2008)

Explores how the English, in the centuries before the Norman Conquest, located themselves both literally and imaginatively in the world. This book focuses on Anglo-Saxon representations of place as revealed in a wide variety of texts in Latin and in Old English as well as in diagrams of holy sites.

Across an Inland Sea by Nicholas Howe Across an Inland Sea, Hardback (March 2003)

How do the places we live in and visit shape our lives and memories? What does it mean to reside in different locations across the span of a life? Presenting the portraits of places seen from within, the author contemplates how places create and gather their stories and how, in turn, a sense of place locates the stories of our own lives.
