The rich and diverse visual heritage of Northern Yorkshire in the pre-Conquest period is revealed in this major addition to the much-admired Corpus series. The volume surveys the sculpture in the historic North Riding of Yorkshire. The total of some 400 carvings include important pre-Viking Age monuments, among them a range of inscriptions at Whitby Abbey that are crucial for our understanding of the pre-Conquest monastery. Anglo-Scandinavian monuments predominate, and a number of workshops have been identified.
