VI.20.01.03. Read The Anglo-Saxon Age: A Very Short Introduction

Date Accomplished: 3 May 2011

VSI Anglo-Saxon Age

As one would expect for the Very Short Introduction series, this books really just covers the basics of Anglo-Saxon history.  It is for the most part a political history of the different rulers in the different kingdoms, with occasional divergences into the church and monastic changes as well as the developement of rural systems in early England.  It certainly covers all the high points in a very concise manner and I found it to be a good source to reacquaint myself with the history of England from about 300 to 1066.
