This paper follows on from my previous research into the Early Modern English retrieval of the Anglo-Saxon language and culture to focus on the correspondence of Sir William Dugdale (1605-1685), a key figure among the group of antiquarians committed to compiling Anglo-Saxon glossaries and dictionaries. The unique source of information about Dugdale’s activity as an antiquary and lexicographer, and about the contacts he kept with his contemporaries is the bulk of Dugdale’s correspondence, published by William Hamper back in 1827. It consists of a hundred and ninety-six letters, of which seventy-eight written by Dugdale and a hundred and eighteen sent to him
