Format: Hardcover
Higham makes clear in his notes that this book is aimed at the First Year Undergraduate and the depth of detail the book covers in making its points valid certainly requires sustained concentration from the reader. But to discover the real reasons why the Saxon royal heritage collapsed and the French Normans conquered England with only minor resistance or effort is quite an eye-opener and reveals many lessons still not learned today! Like a Tolstoy novel, readers could become confused by the many similar-sounding and spelt names of these medieval English characters, and this is the main barrier to easy understanding of "the plot". But remain focussed and the educational rewards will be well worthwhile.

HASH(0x9c3af51c) out of 5 stars NORMAN CONQUEST OF 1066-DEATH KNOLL FOR ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND 18 Jun. 2010
By Kay's Husband - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book printed in Britain is a well illustrated volume focusing on the endpoint of Anglo-Saxon England. Politics and invasion are central to the question what happened to bring about "the death of anglo-saxon England".

The chapters within this book are as listed below:

The Making and Unmaking of Aethelred the 'Unraed'
Power and Legitimacy: Danish Kingship and its Opponents
Crisis, Mishap and Opportunity: English Kingship 1035-1065
1066: Succession and Crisis
Further Reading

The book is lavishly illustrated with both maps and black and white photographs, with a center section of 8 pages of color photographs. The world of politics, ambition, intrigue of Anglo-Saxon England are well explored in this volume. A true value at present Amazon prices, years back I paid $15.98 for my copy. Well recommended by one who enjoys reading books centered on the events of 1066.

Another volume entitled HAROLD; THE LAST ANGLO-SAXON KING sit side-by-side on my library shelves. Both these books may be of interest to readers who enjoy this period.

Semper Fi.
