If you buy just one book on the Anglo Saxon period buy this one. Dumbed down history it is not. Detailed and informative drawing on a variety of fields. Brilliantly illustrated in full colour makes it a delight just to turn the pages.
Arranged chronologically the chapters are divided by short follow up sections on sources and issues which can be read as stand alone essays. This is a book not just to read cover to cover but to dip into on whatever aspect of Anglo Saxon history interests you or you need to look up information on. If this book doesn't grab your interest in the period none will. The extensive Bibliography then directs you towards further study.
