This volume comprises 28 biographies of outstanding scholars, mostly in the form of obituaries originally written for the British Academy's Proceedings. During the 19th and 20th centuries these men and women made formative contributions to the study of the early medieval British Isles, with areas of expertise ranging across languages and literature, history, archaeology, art history and palaeography. Lapidge's introductory essay identifies the connections between these lives and sets them within the context of their evolving disciplines.
