4.0 out of 5 stars bias over emphasised, 24 April 2013
By 
This review is from: Celt And Saxon (Celtic interest) (Paperback)
accusations of bias are vastly overemphasised by other reviewers i feel. this is a very readable account of the period packed full of information on all manner of related things. language is covered in some detail as is the development of christianity.
chapters are:
the end of empire
mutiny of the mercenaries
the coming of the saxons
arthur fact or fiction
the british celtic kingdoms
the saxon consolidation
massacre, migration or assimilation
cadwallon and penda
the celtic church
the conversion of the saxons
saxon expansion
the triumph of the picts
the vikings
asser the celt: advisor to alfred
the prophecy of great britian
do the british really exist (this chapter is an almost tongue in cheek look at what britishness is)
it also contains an extensive chronology and bibliography
maybe some of the ideas are outdated but thats ok this criticism is also made of sir frank stenton who will continue to be read.
