This edition of 151 royal diplomas and other documents associated with Abingdon Abbey and its estates forms a major resource for the study of Anglo-Saxon history.

A substantial Introduction discusses the abbeys history and endowment, and considers controversial issues arising from the texts themselves. Part 2, covering the period 955-1066, will complete the edition of this important archive.
