A Gazetteer Of Anglo-Saxon & Viking Sites: County Durham &
Northumberland aims to be a comprehensive guide to places,
artefacts and material of Anglo-Saxon and Viking interest in County
Durham and Northumberland (pre 1974 borders). Four sites in
Roxburghshire are included because of their proximity to the
Northumberland border. PART 1 provides background material to put
the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings into their historical context, plus a
glossary of terms, plans and features of Anglo-Saxon churches, and
features relating to crossheads, cross-shafts, grave covers and
grave markers. PART 2 identifies 123 "sites" with the aim of
enabling the reader to know exactly what they are looking for and
where exactly to look: there is a site index. In alphabetical order
and divided into County Durham, Northumberland and The Borders
(Roxburghshire), each entry is: Star rated to indicate the quality
of what there is to see and how easy it is to find. Precisely
located and described, including measurements and descriptions of
decoration where appropriate.
