Summary
The medieval period is often thought of as the Dark Ages, a period of cultural stagnation and little economic and political advancement. However, Britain in this period survived invasion upon invasion, absorbing aspects of Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Norman culture. Britain developed from a small and fractured island to a more unified and powerful nation that could hold its own in European politics. This book covers this extensive period of change, guiding us through the key events, such as the many invasions and internal conflicts, and the key personalities, such as the Empress Matilda, who never quite became queen, William the Conqueror, whose title during his lifetime was William the Bastard, and Edward II, who was reputedly killed with a red-hot poker
