4.0 out of 5 stars
Fantastic, inspiring account of the real middle earth, 5 Mar 2011
I bought this book for two reasons; one, to feed a hunger for the more mysterious periods of british history, and two, to give me reference for my own future writings when i finally get my own book finished!
I found the book exciting and informative, and I devoured the entire thing in a matter of days. It covers almost everything I wanted to know about; from details of the roman invasion to the more interpretive ideas of the anglo-saxon mindset and imagination. It was a great starting point for further research (this being the reason for only 4 stars rather than 5) and i would recommend it to anyone wanting an exciting literary adventure into the dark ages without too much stress on the brain!
