The work is divided into an introduction, five chapters: 1: Glory and Shield of the East Angles. 2: The Slain King. 3: Herb, Blood and Remedy. 4: Villa Regia, Axis Mundi. 5: The Kingdom of East Anglia. These chapters are followed by a special one entitled 'Selig Suffolk' and notes and references, bibliography and an appendix containing some poems. There are many helpful photographic and other illustrations and several excellent explanatory maps and diagrams. 'Selig' may be roughly translated as 'holy'. Right down to this very day the county of Suffolk has a greater density of churches than any other county anywhere in the England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and many of them are dedicated to the Virgin Mary. East Anglia (Norfolk and Suffolk) was once known as 'Mary's Bower' or 'Dower' in recognition to its devotion to the Mother of Jesus also known as 'Our Lady.'
Saint Edmund the Martyr was the Patron Saint of England until 1357 when he was unfairly and unnecessarily replaced by the very legendary Saint George by the much over-rated King Edward III. There are an increasing number of people who would like to see Saint Edmund restored to his rightful place as England's patron saint. He is currently the patron Saint of Suffolk. His flag is a white griffin on a red background. His saint's day is 20 November and a neighbour of mine always flies this flag from his flag pole on that date here in Lincolnshire.
All told, we have here a carefully researched, well written compilation of fascinating facts concerning a very formative period of English history and it's inspiring to have an author who is able to record his careful research in such a readily assimilated fashion.
P.S. I purchased this item via Amazon from an independent seller. It arrived very quickly and long before Amazon's estimated date, which means I've had time to read it and write this review. although Amazon still insists that I have not received it and that it will arrived later on. Isn't that just lovely?
