The Anglo - Saxons

248,00 DKK

For 650 years - from the end of Roman rule to the Battle of Hastings - the Anglo-Saxons controlled England; in religion, culture and administration their legacy is still with us today.

In this major survey three distinguished historians, James Campbell, Patrick Wormald and Eric John, have produced an exciting introduction to the field. Although the 'Lost Centuries' between AD400 and 600 suffer from a scarcity of written sources, and only two writers, King Alfred and the Venerable Bede, dominate our understanding of later times, the authors have created a rich and thought-provoking account of the stormy era when Britain became Christian and sustained several waves of Viking invaders.

A single nation, they suggest, slowly emerged from the rivalries and fluctuating fortunes of separate kingdoms like Mercia, Wessex and East Anglia. Major figures such as Offa, Alfred, Edgar and Cnut are discussed in detail, while the stunning illustrations convey the immense achievements of Anglo-Saxon art and culture.

Above all, the book shatters forever the idea that the Anglo-Saxon centuries were 'simply a barbarous prelude to better things'.
