Sample text

20 The latter saw England from a European, specifically an early medieval German, standpoint. Rees Davies’s awareness arose from the perspective of a wider British history, in which England was a constant conscious or unconscious comparison. Assessments of England and its historiography are central not only to its study, but also to that of its neighbors in these islands. And, in turn, study of them can perhaps open up questions about England. It is hoped that this volume might be in some ways a small contribution to this endeavor.

This new approach is much more concerned with identity than numbers, and employs a much more fluid and situational reading of it. It is an approach that is arguably part of the much wider phenomenon of new cultural history, and it has characterized a swathe of important work on this period across Europe. It is central, for example, to the work on ethnogenesis that has dominated study of the late antique and earliest medieval centuries since World War II. ” Ethnicity raises questions about group and individual identity, and emphasizes this as malleable, fluid, situational, and subjective.
