A fantastic read: I literally couldn't put it down. This book is surprisingly accessible for what would normally seem a dry subject. Once again the late Frank Barlow manages to strike a balance between historically informative and yet interesting to both a student of Anglo-Saxon England and the general reader. This book is a hidden gem amongst the dull, tedious and generally difficult peices of work on Edward the Confessor that I have read in my lifetime.
