Just Wondering…

It might be a few days before I can post something more substantial than this. The semester just started and I am trying to readjust while discovering how busy I will actually be. I do have a request, however. I wonder if someone out there might know of any academic work, journal articles, etc., concerning the Prittlewell Prince. I have yet to find anything and I want to use the case in my thesis. If you run across something, please let me know. I want to thank everyone who has commented on, wished well, or even just visited the site. You have made me feel welcome, indeed. Back in a jiff!

    The only things I know of beyond the initial notifications etc is the Museum of London booklet, titled The Prittlewell Prince, available from their bookshop and I think Amazon has it or had it. You might also look for these, though I think they are all just brief notices.

    Anon. “East Saxon King Buried at Prittlewell?” Essex Jnl 39.1 (Spring 2004): 19-20, ill.

    Lakin, David. “The Prittlewell Royal Anglo-Saxon Burial.” Minerva 15.3 (May/June 2004): 31-32, ill.

    Olsen, Ted. “Christian Saxon King Unearthed.” Christian History and Biography 82 (Spring 2004): 9, ill.

    The Regesta Imperii OPAC gives the following:

    Lyn Blackmore, “Schätze eines angelsächsischen Königs von Essex. Die Funde aus einem Prunkgrab von Prittlewell und ihr Kontext” in Sebastian Brather (ed.), Zwischen Spätantike und Fr¨hmittelalter: Archäologie des 4. bis 7. Jahrhunderts im Westen, Ergänzungsbände zum Reallexikon der germanischen Altertumskunde 57 (Berlin 2008), pp. 323-342

    Anon., “Prittlewell: treasures of a king of Essex”in Current archaeology Vol. 16 (2004) pp. 430-436 [pretty sure that volume no. must be a typo!]

    Susan M. Hirst, Taryn Nixon, Peter Rowsome & Susan M. Wright, The Prittlewell Prince. The Discovery of a Rich Anglo-Saxon Burial in Essex (London 2004)

    So, basically, aside from the British Museum publication, which I have already purchased, we mainly have a variety of “announcement” type mentions. The Blackmore looks promising and recent, if I can find it. Other than that, I guess the discovery is too recent to have garnered any more in-depth scholarship. Thank you both for your assistance. I owe you one.

    Salutations. I just wanted to say that i’ve enjoyed reading your blog so far, and that you should keep up the good work. I’ve been dithering around as to whether or not I should start up a blog of my own, and your efforts have been partially responsible for me actually doing so.

    Just to put it into perspective, I’ve just been reading here in 2009 books published in 2007 that report and study on finds in 1989-91. I hope it won’t be 15 years before a major book on Prittlewell, but one never knows.

    There’s a good article in British Archaeology May 2004 by excavation director Ian Blair, conservator Liz Barham and finds specialist Lyn Blackmore (text only at http://www.britarch.ac.uk/ba/ba76/feat1.shtml)
