Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fascinating book, covering the early origins of our country, almost up until the Norman Conquest in 1066. This is not an easy read, by any means, there is just so much information to absorb, but the many maps, photographs and drawings certainly help. I have not found that this is book which I have wanted to read from the beginning to the end so far, but rather, by looking through the index, I've found bits about interesting subjects, such as Doggerland, and read those in isolation. There is just so much incredible information within these pages - much more is known about our very early history than I had realised, and some of it has inspired me to investigate further into a period in history I had largely ignored until I got this book.
