A Brief Guide To The Anglo-Saxons
Children of Beowulf, Warriors of God, Pioneers in Europe
Running from about AD 400 to the 1100s, this book shows the Anglo-Saxons as formative in the history of England and Europe.
The society inspired by the warrior world of the Old English poem Beowulf saw England become the world's first nation state and Europe's first country to conduct affairs in its own language, and Bede and Boniface of Wessex establish the dating convention we still use today. Including all the latest research, this is a fascinating assessment of a vital historical period.
