Northumbria: The Lost Kingdom, Paperback / softback Book

Northumbria: The Lost Kingdom Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Northumbria was one of the great kingdoms of Britain in the Dark Ages, enduring longer than the Roman Empire.

Yet it has been all but forgotten. This book puts Northumbria back in its rightful place, at the heart of British history.

From the impregnable fastness of Bamburgh Castle, the kings of Northumbria ruled a vast area, and held sway as High Kings of Britain.

From the tidal island of Lindisfarne, extraordinary saints and learned scholars brought Christianity and civilization to the rest of the country.

Now, thanks to the ongoing work of a dedicated team of archaeologists this story is slowly being brought to light.

The excavations at Bamburgh Castle have revealed a society of unsuspected sophistication and elegance, capable of creating swords and jewellery unparalleled before or since, and works of art and devotion that still fill the beholder with wonder.
