Review by fothpaul
A good introduction to the Anglo-Saxon period of English history. Has reminded me that I enjoy history quite a lot and I'll be looking to read a few more of these short introductions before moving on to more serious works. It helps to give a brief overview of the subject. Although quite expensive they give a nice brief overview of the subject matter.
