Now retired, Donald Scragg has had a long, highly distinguished and extremely prolific career as an Anglo-Saxonist.

 

Alongside his extensive work on homilies, source-study and poems like "The Battle of Maldon", spelling has been a continuous interest throughout his career, from his "History of English Spelling"(1974) to his important article "Spelling Variations in Eleventh-Century English"
(1992) to two major-externally funded projects in the first decade of the new millennium. [1] By tabulating the stints of all the scribes at work in late Anglo-Saxon England, his new "Conspectus of Scribal Hands" makes another significant step towards his long-cherished ambition to write a history of late Old English spelling, to discover just how standardized was "standard" late West Saxon.
