Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book presents a table reproduced from David Pelteret, Slavery in Early Medieval England (Woodbridge: Boydell & Brewer, 1995), pp. 129-130. Pelteret employs a sample of nine Anglo-Saxon wills from the tenth century and nineteen Anglo-Saxon wills from the eleventh century to suggest that there was "a definite increase in the manumission of slaves in East Anglia in the eleventh century." He argues that in the tenth-century wills only a proportion of the testator's slaves were to be manumitted upon their owner's death.

Keywords: Anglo-Saxon wills; David Pelteret
