John Hines / Karen Høilund Nielsen / Frank Siegmund (eds.), The Pace of Change: Studies in Early-Medieval Chronology. Cardiff Studies in Archaeology (Oxbow Books: Oxford 1999). - ISBN 1-900188-78-3.

Chronology is the factual basis for contextualising archaeology. This collection of papers aims to integrate local chronogical schemes with more comprehensive and general "master" chronologies. The studies focus on Germanic or Germanised populations during and after the Roman Empire's fall in the West: the rich Germanic archaeological sites provide a yardstick for other areas. The authors also play close attention to terminology with definitions of major periods, sub-periods and artefact-types and to the relationship between typology and computerised quantitive and statistical techniques. The papers, all in English, cover North-West Europe, Denmark and Britain. Each is accompanied by a German summary.
