The translation is annotated, and notes provide information pertaining to dates, important personages, martial affairs, politics and religion. In addition, an introduction includes a brief history of Hildesheim, as well as a description of the organization of The Annals, a discussion of the possible identity of the anonymous authors of the text, the historical method used by the authors, and the sources that were employed in the creation of the text.
