Publisher's Summary

From Beginning to the End

This is an excellent introduction to the history of this often misunderstood time. Although it is a story written in broad strokes, of an extremely complicated period, particularly in the development of Britain, the author has peppered it with some fascinating details of the people and the events of the time.

Inside you will hear about....

  • The Ship Builders
  • Life in Scandinavia
  • "The Fury From the North"
  • Expansion Beyond the British Isles
  • And much more!

She has also taken care to include extracts from some of the contemporary comment that is available. The extracts from the extravagantly presented poetic oral traditions allow the listener a glimpse into what it might have been like to be there. The text will certainly enable you to decide what further aspects of the history of the Middle Ages you might like to explore.
