9780007203611: Britain in the Middle Ages

Drawing upon on a wealth of knowledge, discovery, research, and technical advances, this historical book dispels the common misconception of the "Dark Ages" as an era of chaos and violence. Redefining everything from the role of the Vikings to the supposed rigidity of the feudal system, this eminent archaeologist demolishes many of the myths about medieval Britain. Readers will learn that the Middle Ages were far from static; the two centuries following the Black Death epidemic of 1348, were a time of diversity, transition, and growth. Engaging and scholarly, this book reintroduces the reader to an era that gave birth to the modern world.

About the Author:

Dr Francis Pryor has spent thirty years studying the prehistory of the Fens. He has excavated Bronze Age farms, field systems and entire Iron Age villages. In 1987, with his wife Maisie Taylor, he set up the Fenland Archaeological Trust, which opened Flag Fen to the public. He appears frequently on TV's Time Team and is the author of 'Seahenge', as well as 'Britain B.C.' and 'Britain A.D.', which he adapted and presented for Channel 4.

Review:

"Revisionist history at its best."  —Choice

"An interesting take on an age that continues to influence the world."  —Kirkus Reviews
