  • The historian Marc Morris masterfully picks out key themes and characters, from King Offa to Alfred the Great, to produce a coherent and compelling narrative of this turbulent time.

    Pippa Bailey, New Statesman
  • A vivid, sharply drawn story of seven centuries of profound political change, told with wit, authority and shrewd historical judgement. The Anglo-Saxons is a superbly clear and evocative journey through England's beginnings, and Marc Morris is a wonderful guide.

    Thomas Penn
  • This is a much-needed book - an accessible, eminently readable account of the peoples who first made England. It's a gripping story, beautifully told!

    Bernard Cornwell, author of The Last Kingdom
