WARRIOR: A LIFE OF WAR IN ANGLO-SAXON BRITAIN

ALBERT (E.)

B085

£18.99

292pp., 3 maps. 2019. Warrior tells the story of forgotten man, a man whose bones were found in an Anglo-Saxon graveyard at Bamburgh castle in Northumberland. It is the story of a violent time when Britain was defining itself in waves of religious fervour, scattered tribal expansion and terrible bloodshed; it is the story of the fighting class, men apart, defined in life and death by their experiences on the killing field.
