Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Cemeteries and Society in Merovingian Gaul contains the table of contents, a list of figures and tables, abbreviations, acknowledgements and publication acknowledgements. The book concerns two problems, one general and one specific. The general question is that of how one might use written and excavated material together. It discusses the relationships between documentary history and archaeology while the subsequent articles cover the interpretation of fourth-century Gallic furnished inhumations, the celebrated burial of King Childeric I, and the ways in which one might 'read' a burial as evidence for ritual.

Keywords: King Childeric I; Merovingian Gaul
