I really wanted this book but thought the hardback price was a bit much. So, I subscribed to BBC History magazine and got it as a freebie. This book is a history of the period between the Romans leaving Britain and the Norman Conquest. Given how little is known of the period, and that what is know is written by either biaised narrators or written long after the events; Marc Morris presents a very good history of this period in history. The book is broken down in to chapters which cover set periods either concentrating on kings, dynasties, invasions or important church figures. Easily readable, very interesting and probably annoying to my family (reading is better than board games). Highly recommended for anyone who wnats to know more about the "dark ages."
