This book is an informative, easily accessible and enjoyable read. It is aimed at anyone interested in Northumbria regardless of their age or regional origin. It is not intended to be a dry scholarly tome (and I have waded through my fair share of those) and succeeds in this aim without skimping on fact.
I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the style of writing. I enjoyed the streak of humour that often surfaces in the text too.
I have no interest in the `Jordan and Jade Goody celebrity scene' and nor has this book, in spite of what J Spittle has to say.
Good communicative media is not just about getting the facts across. Engaging the audience, stimulating interest and being just a little bit entertaining can make the difference between switching the reader off with just a little too much of that `sense of gravitas or authority' and actually switching the reader on to discover more about the subject.
In fact it was a book such as this that stimulated my lifelong interest in archaeology.
