Anglo-Saxon Charters

An edition of all pre-Conquest documents relating to grants of land and liberties.

This corpus is intended to include all pre-Conquest title deeds known to have survived: that is, all documents relating to grants of land and liberties, whoever their grantee, whatever their diplomatic form — wills and memoranda as well as diplomas and writs, leases as well as grants in perpetuity. The text of each charter (in the original Latin or Old English) is accompanied by a critical apparatus and detailed commentary. An introduction places each archive in context.

Chair of the project committee: Professor Nicholas Vincent. The series is sponsored jointly with the Royal Historical Society.

Volumes are published by Oxford University Press. Some older volumes are available from Oxbow Books.
