Excellent - but not for complete beginners.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Anglo-Saxons (Paperback)
Each article in the book is competently written and complete within itself. All the information has been thoroughly researched and is explained clearly, and in context. (Five stars for quality)
I enjoyed as much as I could understand. Being a beginner, I could cope with Offa and Sutton Hoo but got a bit lost with Aethelric, Wulfred, Cenwulf and that crowd. I need to read it another couple of times to get the most out of it. (Four stars because I think it is a bit specialised for the Joe Bloggses of this world).
