Abstract

Brian Hope-Taylor's thesis of Yeavering as a place of contact between an indigenous population and an incoming elite, few in numbers,is reviewed in the light of developments in thinking on early medieval studies. It is concluded that Yeaving shows how the practice of kingship appropriated a sense of ancestry embedded in the locality and traditions of leadership and assembly at this place and how ideas from Roman provincial governanace and Frankish kingship were incorporated.
