Critics Review

  • An absolute masterpiece. It feels like the missing piece of historiography on an essential period of our past. Marc Morris is the platonic ideal of scholarly yet readable big history.

  • A rich trove of ancient wonders, worthy of many a night in the mead hall, listening to its telling! Yet it is also a book for our time … Marc Morris is a genius of medieval narrative, and I am full of admiration.

  • The people and times are brought vividly back to life allowing the reader to see, perhaps for the first time, the foundations of modern England … A remarkable achievement. Marc’s book will surely become a must-read for any student of English history, and particularly of this woefully overlooked, but vital, period.
