This review is from: Alfred the Great: Asser's Life of King Alfred and Other Contemporary Sources (Classics) (Paperback)
The book is an excellent addition to anybody who is studying the events of Anglo-Saxon England. The book includes Asser's "Life" and this is added to with extracts from the Anglo-Saxon chronicles. What makes this book so impressive is its ability to present Alfred in his context as the Great King that he was. The inclusion of various other sources mean that one can really grasp the knowledge and learn more about the period in which Alfred lived. The notes iron out any confusing that could be left in the open. It is one of the most important and worthwhile buys that I have made while studying this topic at university.
