What was it like to be a child in England between the fifth and eleventh centuries? Who looked after children, how were they educated, what games did they play, and when did they have to take on adult responsibilities? What happened at birth, when were they weaned, what did they eat, how were they cared for, and how were they mourned if they died? In this ground-breaking book, Dr Sally Crawford teases out the world of the early medieval English child through a wide-ranging investigation of the archaeological, historical and literary evidence, including excavated cemeteries and settlements, medical texts, law codes and wills, annals, lives of the saints, and riddles, to paint a colourful picture of childhood in the Anglo-Saxon past.
