‘An absolute masterpiece’    Dan Snow

– A History of the Beginnings of England

Renowned historian Marc Morris tells the extraordinary story of how the foundations of England were laid.  Covering six centuries he explores what happened when Britain left the Roman Empire and foreign invaders came from across the sea into a violent and unstable world, and established themselves as its new masters.  He describes how they fought relentlessly for supremacy but then abandoned their Gods for Christianity, establishing churches and intricate works of art, reviving towns and trade, and creating shires, boroughs and bishoprics.  A new society, a new culture, and a single unified nation emerged.  Featuring characters such as King Offa, Alfred the Great and Edward the Confessor, and drawing on a vast range of original evidence, Morris brings to life this little understood period of our nation’s history.
