…or, why there was no such thing as a regio in the area of southern England in the sixth century.
Having been hard pushed these past few weeks to set aside a few minutes to compose a blog post, I don’t quite know how I’ve managed to find the time to write an entire essay. But I have. Actually, in the manner of a semi-prepared Blue Peter presenter, some of it was prepared earlier (like, almost two years earlier) but the remainder belongs to the past couple of weeks. I could give a rundown of what it’s about here, only I’ve done that already on the page where you’ll find the link to the essay. Suffice to say, if you’re interested in Early and Middle Anglo-Saxon history, charters or the early medieval political geography of the southernmost portions of Britain (and if you’ve read this far then I guess you must be), you may find some value in it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, firstname.lastname@example.org for any feedback, questions or offers of fame and fortune.
