This review is from: Anglo-Saxon England (Oxford History of England) (Paperback)
For anyone seriously interested in this period of English history, this book is a good solid overview with a wide range of sources and broad picture of the era and key events and personalities. Everyone studying this topic for the first time at high school or as an undergraduate will find it immensely useful starting point for a portrait of the era - its values, the key players and the factors motivating their actions. Not exactly light-hearted, but certainly not a dry-as-dust tome either.
