The Anglo-Saxons: A History of the Beginnings of England [9781786330994]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A history that spans more than half a millennium, The Anglo-Saxons is nothing less than a quest for England's origins. This is the story of our island at its most strange and evocative period - the time of the Anglo-Saxons.

Marc Morris's brilliant new book will take its readers from an alien world of slaves, temples, villas, druids and amphorae, to a familiar landscape of shires and boroughs, villages, parish churches and minsters; from the worship of vanished gods like Thor and Woden to the veneration of saints - Cuthbert, Alban, Edmund - who still recognised today; from a population who spoke Latin and Celtic, to one whose language was recognizably the ancestor of the English that is spoken today.


AUTHOR:

Dr Marc Morris is a historian and broadcaster, specialising in the Middle Ages. He is the author of King John: Treachery, Tyranny and the Road to Magna Carta, The Norman Conquest and A Great and Terrible King.
