Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This survey of medieval Britain presents the events comprising the two great invasions from Continental Europe as a coherent narrative.  Unique both for its broad historical perspective and for its wide geographic coverage, Edward James  all-encompassing history 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, providing 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.

Edward James is Professor of Medieval History at University College Dublin.
