Description
Ten centuries ago, England was host to magicians, monks, warriors, and wandering merchants, fearing an apocalypse and yet not knowing what year it was or what lay beyond the nearest valley. As Robert Lacey and Danny Danziger relate in this bestselling history, "Engla-Lond" was a dark and superstitious place, where the dead were sometimes buried with supplies for the journey to their new life in heaven. Arranged by month, this eye-opening chronicle of long-ago reveals a people who—despite the constant threat of invasions and plagues—were often healthy, resilient, and prosperous.

"A brilliant little book, well-written, knowledgeable, insightful, accessible, a model of how popular social history should be written."—Glasgow Herald
