In the course of the first phase of the PASE Project, the members of the Project team have published various books and articles in printed format and on the web to illustrate PASE’s aims, methodology and first results. Now that the database is publicly available on-line, further essays will follow demonstrating possible ways in which PASE can help enhancing different aspects of Anglo-Saxon studies.
