The Anglo-Saxons dominated England for longer than the Romans. They overran the native Britons, fought relentlessly against each other for glory and supremacy, abandoned their old gods for Christianity, established hundreds of churches, created dazzlingly intricate works of art, survived Viking invasion, and pioneered English local government with a network of shires, boroughs and bishoprics. Taking in famous figures like Penda, Offa, Alfred the Great and Edward the Confessor, and drawing on a vast range of chronicles, letters, archaeology and artefacts, this book tells their story.
