About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1916, this book was based upon the Rede Lecture for that year, which was delivered at Cambridge University by the archaeologist and bishop George Forrest Browne (1833–1930). The text presents an examination of the Anglo-Saxon crosses of Bewcastle and Ruthwell, providing information on their appearance and the broader context of their creation. Notes and illustrative figures are also included, with photographs and reproductions of ruins. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in archaeology, ancient crosses and Anglo-Saxon history.
