A monograph outlining the results of the project has been published (2013), entitled Beyond the Burghal Hidage: Anglo-Saxon civil defence in the Viking Age (Leiden: Brill)
The proceedings of the conference Landscapes of Defence in the Viking Age: Anglo-Saxon England and Comparative Perspectives has also been published (2013) as a separate edited volume by Brepols in the Studies in the Early Middle Ages 28.
The database of archaeological and place-name evidence from the four case-study areas will form an independent resource archived at the ADS as a ‘special collections’ database and be accessible via their HEIRPORT portal.
