'outstanding ... one of the most valuable contributions ever made to our knowledge of the history of our own land'English Historical Review This book covers the emergence of the earliest English kingdoms to the establishment of the Anglo-Norman monarchy in 1087. Professor Stenton examines the development of English society, from the growth of royal power to the establishment of feudalism after the Norman Conquest. He also describes thechief phases in the history of the Anglo-Saxon church, including the Conversion of the various English kingdoms, and the unification of Britain by the kings of Mercia and completed by the kings of Wessex. Drawing on many diverse examples-place-names, coins and charters, wills and pleas, archaeology,and the laws of the Anglo-Saxons-the result is a fascinating insight into this period of English history.
Sir Frank Stenton (1880-1967) was Professor of History at Reading University from 1926 to 1946 and its Vice-Chancellor from 1946 to 1950.
