LIGHT FROM THE DARK AGES. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, January 2011, Pages: 252
For many years people have been curious to know more about the period often referred to as, "The Dark Ages". On the contrary it was a quite lively period with continual feuding between rival tribes , The West Saxons, the Mercians, the Jutes, Celts and the Picts interspersed by sporadic raids by Sea-Pirates (often from northern Europe.)It was a period where life was indeed ,"Nasty, brutish and short.")The focus within these pages is to shed a little more light on the on the life (and death) of the British people from the Roman and Anglo-Saxon era up until the Norman invasion. Selections from Bede, The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle' and excerpts from ,‘De Excidio et Conquestu Brittanie' gives us more insight into those turbulent times prior to the unification of the tribes of Britain into one nation.
