5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britain After Rome: The Fall and Rise, 400 to 1070: Anglo-Saxon Britain Vol 2 (The Penguin History of Britain) (Paperback)
There has been plenty of rubbish written about this book. It is also clear some of the reviewers almost certainly have not read the book. Its only real failing is in its title, which should be England After Rome. Even then the book only really covers eastern 'Anglo-Saxon' lands, with the West, Wales and Scotland almost completely excluded from analysis.

The book covers subjects such as burial goods, farming and fashion. Those looking for evidence for King Arthur or Anglo-Saxon invasions will be disappointed.

What you get are reasonable conclusions based on archaeological evidence only. These conclusions may be unpalatable to some, hence the bad reviews, but certainly more persuasive than some other books on the subject.

Strongly recommended.
