Alistair Campbell (12 December 1907 – 5 February 1974) was a British academic who was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon, University of Oxford, and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, from October 1963 until his death. He was the editor of editions of the Old English poem Battle of Brunanburh,[1] Æthelweard's Chronicon and Æthelwulf's De abbatibus.

Campbell first drew the distinction between the classical and hermeneutic styles of late Roman and early medieval Latin.[2]
