Britain in the First Millennium Paperback
by Edward James
Part of the Britain and Europe series
Ideal for undergraduates, this survey of medieval Britain is a coherent narrative of events between the two great invasions from continental Europe.
It is unique both for its broad historical perspective and for its wide geographic coverage: it spans the 'long' millennium from the first century BC through the Norman conquest and covers events across the whole of Britain, from Cornwall to the Shetlands.
Edward James provides the European context for events in England while also examining the many ways Britain differed from the rest of Europe.
Students of medieval Europe will find his book an invaluable synthesis.
