Charters of Selsey
Susan E. Kelly
British Academy, 1998 - History - 123 pages
This edition contains twenty-one charters from the archive of the episcopal see at Selsey. Susan Kelly's extensive introduction discusses the history of the see, its endowment and its bishops, the history of the archive, and the manuscript evidence. Also included is an analysis of the sequence and date of the Anglo-Saxon rulers of Sussex, for which the Selsey archive is the primary source. With the publication of this latest volume, the Anglo-Saxon Charters series firmly establishes itself as a source of fundamental importance for early Medieval studies.
