Charters of Christ Church Canterbury by S. E. Kelly Charters of Christ Church Canterbury, Hardback (September 2013)

This edition collects all the surviving records and title-deeds from the archbishopric and cathedral church of Canterbury from its foundation in 597 to 1066. They are a vital source for English political, ecclesiastical and socio-economic history and for the development of the landscape and the English language in that same period.

Charters of Glastonbury Abbey by S. E. Kelly Charters of Glastonbury Abbey, Hardback (September 2012)

This is the first scholarly edition of the surviving Anglo-Saxon charters of Glastonbury Abbey, with a study of the records of lost charters, and a comprehensive introduction synthesising the evidence for the history of this important monastery from the seventh century to the Norman Conquest.

Charters of Peterborough Abbey by S. E. Kelly Charters of Peterborough Abbey, Hardback (May 2009)

This first edition of the Anglo-Saxon archive of the Benedictine monastery at Peterborough includes royal diplomas, an Old English will and a series of spectacular post-Conquest forgeries. The earlier documents overturn our understanding of an earlier house known as Medeshamstede, and shed light on the fate of the East Midlands under Danish rule.
