The Dark Ages are shrouded in mystery, but Michael Wood has delved into the past and has discovered some astonishing new facts about the period and the people who lived through it. In this book, he discusses the most sensational archeological discovery ever made in Britain, the Sutton Hoo ship, and reveals in sharper focus than ever before some of the most famous names in British history. We meet the warrior queen, Boadicea, and the legendary King Arthur; the great kings who laid the political foundations of England: Offa, who built his dyke on the border of England and Wales; Alfred, whose wars with the Vikings saved the essential Englishness of his country; Athelstan, 'Emperor of Britain'; Eric Bloodaxe who died in a blaze of glory; and Ethelred the Unready who failed to defend England against the renewed Viking invasion; and finally William the Conqueror. The dark Ages are now seen as one of the most exciting periods in the history of Britain. Michael Wood shows how rich and fascinating the reader will find the search for the Dark Ages.
