AbstractThis second session on the Anglo-Saxons and Rome will concentrate on practical issues as well as material and cultural manifestations of Anglo-Saxon travelling to Rome. The first paper will explore the routes that the English chose to travel to Rome between the 8th and the 11th centuries and the reasons behind such choices. The second paper will consider coins and associated objects as a vivid testimony to cultural exchanges between England and Rome in the Anglo-Saxon period. The third paper will explore the relations between St Wilfrid and the 7th-century papacy, setting his contacts with Rome into contemporary continental connections. It will look at the cultural routeways to Rome and the ways in which continental circles were instrumental in Anglo-Saxon relations with Rome.
