More > Saxon is the youngest son in a family that had strong ties to the Saxon Kings. Younger sons, even in the great Norman families, could expect very little unless they married an heiress or rose in the ranks of the Church. This resulted in the ruthless pursuit of self-advancement with all the treachery and intrigue that it required. Even murder is not ruled out where advantage can be gained. Treasonous plots are hatched and foiled in which the Little Saxon has a part to play. He is not only skilled in the use of weapons, but has taken advantage of a monastic education to gain advancement in a world where learning among the ruling classes is a rarity.

The Anglo-Saxons are part of the fabric of Britain. They are tried to the Dark Ages and to the early period of the Medieval World. The Anglo-Saxons were a martial people and this is reflected... More > in the personal names they chose. Plus names pertaining to wolves and elves. Originally they held to the old beliefs but then became Christian. And indeed there anglo-saxon saints.

An extensive list of male and female names is found. And the meaning of each name given. Most of these are rare or simply unfamiliar. Information is given on the anglo-saxon kings which held domain from south east Scotland to the welsh borders. And down to the fringes of Cornwall.

It was originally compiled on the orders of King Alfred the Great in approximately A.D.... More > 890, and subsequently maintained and added to by generations of anonymous scribes until the middle of the 12th Century.

This document is the ultimate timeline of British history from its beginnings up to the end of the reign of King Stephen in 1154. The Chronicle certainly does not present us with a complete history of those times and is probably not 100% accurate, either, but that doesn't diminish its enormous value in helping us to arrive at a clearer picture of what actually happened in Britain over a thousand years ago.< Less
