Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Anglo-Saxon Prognostics, 900-1100: Study and Texts presents a list of terms and concepts. The Anglo-Saxon prognostics represent but a brief phase in the long history of prognostication, which spans a period of over four thousand years and which extends into the present. Even though methods of prognostication hail from different cultures, from Assyrian to Egyptian, and from Greek to Roman, the practice of prognostication can be regarded as a continuum through time and space, because each culture built upon, expanded and modified its own prognostic knowledge and assimilated that of other cultures.

Keywords: Anglo-Saxon prognostics; Assyrian; Egyptian days
