Saxon Thegn, 443-1066 AD, Hardback Book

Saxon Thegn, 443-1066 AD Hardback

Illustrated by Gerry Embleton

Part of the Warrior S. series


The collapse of Roman rule in Britain was not so much a sudden catastrophe as a long and drawn-out decline.

The 'Celtic' Britons retreated gradually to the highland areas of Wales, Cornwall and the south-west of Scotland.

Control of the fertile eastern lowlands was lost to warriors of Germanic origin who migrated from the Continent.

These Germanic conquerors have become known to history as the 'Anglo-Saxons'.

They were to dominate the lowland zone of Britain until their final defeat at Hastings in 1066.

This title gives an insight into the everyday life, equipment, dress, battle tactics and life on campaign of the typical Anglo-Saxon warrior of this period - the thegn.
