It describes a journey which begins in Cornwall and continues through Wales and Ireland, then across to Scotland and eventually down to London and southern Britain. It is a dangerous world, full of tribal war, there are social pitfalls too. Here are the realities of life in the sixth century AD. AD 500 is based sqarely on archaeological and historical evidence, and reveals the range of different customs and beliefs that existed in post-Roman Britain. With the narrative of the Greeks providing a condescending and often hilarious running commentary on 'the barbarians', this journey through the islands provides a vivid and original picture of life in the Dark Ages.
