A good, but extremely short introduction to English history 500-1066. ( )

Very good basic introduction to Ango-Saxon England--its politics, wars, religion, administration, and social structure. ( )

A good introduction to the Anglo-Saxon period of English history. Has reminded me that I enjoy history quite a lot and I'll be looking to read a few more of these short introductions before moving on to more serious works. It helps to give a brief overview of the subject. Although quite expensive they give a nice brief overview of the subject matter. ( )

Useful overview/refresher. Pity the illustrations couldn't have been in colour. ( )
