An interesting exposition on the history of the Angles and the Saxons from what little history is recorded about their presence in Britain during Roman times through their eventual mass invasion following the Romans departure and onwards up until the Normans usurped their power and authority Some Saxons such as Alfred are better known than others The popularity of Bernard Cornwell s Last Kingdom books and the TV series made from them though wound around Alfred s reign and featuring a different lead character nevertheless stays fairly true to history such that they have formed a picture of the times in readers mindsThe book also covers most of the major discoveries of modern times such as Sutton Hoo and the Staffordshire Hoard These have given insight into Saxon society but even so much about these finds still remains conjectureHowever I found it very interesting even if I didn t try to commit the myriad of tongue twisting names to memory
