I would recommend this product for its function as well as its 'retro' look. I purchased one for my 1970s trike and one for my tandem trike of c. 1980.

Although not primarily based on original research I found this book a stimulating account of the role of saints' relics in medieval Europe.

I like this audio version of Beowulf and the underlying translation. The latter rates alongside that of Kevin Crossley-Holland's published version.


Environment, Society and Landscape in Early Medieval England: Time and Topography (Anglo-Saxon Studies)
Environment, Society and Landscape in Early Medieval England: Time and Topography (Anglo-Saxon Studies)
by Tom Williamson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £45.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting and well argued book redressing the underplaying of environmental factors in discussion of the landscape, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my own research about the Isle of Wight in the early medieval period I have found physical factors such as soil type and water supply to be of importance in the development of the landscape and settlement. It is good to see these factors discussed in a wider context.
