Product description

Review

The historian Marc Morris masterfully picks out key themes and characters, from King Offa to Alfred the Great, to produce a coherent and compelling narrative of this turbulent time. ― Pippa Bailey, New Statesman

A vivid, sharply drawn story of seven centuries of profound political change, told with wit, authority and shrewd historical judgement.
The Anglo-Saxons is a superbly clear and evocative journey through England's beginnings, and Marc Morris is a wonderful guide. ― Thomas Penn

This is a much-needed book - an accessible, eminently readable account of the peoples who first made England. It's a gripping story, beautifully told! ―
Bernard Cornwell, author of The Last Kingdom
