A Gazetteer of Sub-Roman Britain (AD 400-600) is meant to be used as a quick-reference tool for archaeologists and historians studying late Roman and early medieval occupation in Britain. Although I have added personal commentary and form to the Gazetteer, much of my work has involved the collection and editing of excavation reports and archaeological surveys. I am thus deeply indebted to the hundreds of archaeologists whose fieldwork and publications have gone into the making of this Gazetteer. I thank them all collectively, and invite their participation in the future expansion of the database.

I would especially like to thank Prof. Stephen D. White for his encouragement and advice; Dr. Rajka Makjanic for her interest in publishing the original print monograph; Dr. Alan Vince for his enthusiasm for (and patience with) the electronic version of my Gazetteer; and Sandra Garside-Neville for her editorial assistance. The following individuals receive my gratitude for reading and commenting upon various parts of this study: Thomas S. Burns and David F. Bright (Emory University); Patrick Wormald and Barry Cunliffe (Oxford University); W.R. McLeod (West Virginia University); and Mr. Ben Horter. Barry Erdeljon, Ken Maginnis, and James Miller provided technical support for this project. I would also like to thank the staff members at the following institutions for their assistance: the Reinsch Library (Marymount University); the Library of Congress (Washington, DC); Swem Library (College of William and Mary); the Woodruff Library (Emory University); the University of Georgia Library; the Institute for Historical Research and the British Library (London); the Ashmolean Museum Library (Oxford); the Cambridge University Library; the National Library of Wales (Aberystwyth); the University of Glasgow Library; and the Edinburgh University Library, the National Library of Scotland, and the Library of the Museum of Antiquities (Edinburgh).

Financial support for study and travel was graciously provided by Marymount University; Emory University; the English Speaking Union of America (Atlanta Branch); the Frank Berry Memorial Trust; the St. Andrew's Society of Washington, DC; and the Council of Scottish Clans and Associates. I am also grateful to Tempvs Reparatvm for permission to publish material from my monograph in electronic form. Lastly, I would like to express my appreciation for the love and assistance given by my wife, Renée Baird Snyder.

Et Deo gratias. Chris Snyder
