An interesting book recounting a part of history about which many of us know very little. A great resource too I think for author looking to write about the period in question.

Most interesting. Recommended.

an excellent book--very interesting--I have read John Blandly's books on Bede, Caesar, and his versions of King Arthur's tales, as well as modern versions of Irish myths, like "How Diamuid Got His Love Spot," and am very interested in early British and Irish history, and the Celts in general--this fascinating book uncovers many details of Northern England, at the time it was being converted to Christianity.
Highly recommended.
