New cate-gories have had to be added since Dickinson began this exercise, all concerned with analysis: settlement patterns and economics made their appearance from the 1980s but theory has remained largely absent. Dickinson’s view that early Anglo-Saxon archaeology lacked a good theoretical framework was an extraordinarily isolationist one, when archaeology had been undergoing a revolution in thinking since the beginning of the 1960s and was dominated by theoretical considerations appropriate to all archaeological periods.

Further samples from settlements in a wide variety of locations will be required before a detailed picture of early Anglo-Saxon agriculture can be produced; generalising from a few samples may well blur regional differences. There is nothing to suggest that there was any significant change in diet as a result of the migrations and the only changes that occur in the late seventh century could be interpreted as a drive for greater efficiency to feed a growing non-food-producing urban population. It should be remembered however that only a small part of the total diet is visible archaeologically.

It was into such a society that the migrants settled and soon took political control (1992:8–15; 1993:70). This implies that a degree of organisation and leadership existed in the societies of the Continental homelands.
