This is an interesting collection of essays and sources. Approached as a collection on the cultural significance of the Battle of Brunanburh it works well, and there are plenty of historical observations to be made from the essays in the collection, but the reader should be aware that this is not in itself a historical study of this important battle.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0859898636, Paperback)

The Battle of Brunanburh, which has been called by many the birthplace of Englishness, is one of the most important conflicts in the history of the West. Yet it is also one of the least understood: for centuries, scholars have been vexed by some of the most vital questions about Brunanburh, including its location. 

The Battle of Brunanburh: A Casebook  is the most  comprehensive collection of  historical and literary primary sources devoted to this important event. This book  sheds new light on  a pivotal moment in British history that has been little understood until now—and identifies the long-lost battle site.
