Saga Reading


I'm reading this at the moment, as a bit of background for my Saga revival project, which is scheduled for the new year. I live in Winchester so the subject of this book is very close to home. It's written in a slightly unusual style but it is still readable and has some very interesting angles on the period which I hadn't been aware of before.

  1. I have that book on the way to me, plus another of his. Currently reading his book on King Oswald of Northumbria "King in the North". I agree about the different style - think one of his strengths is in his description of the landscapes.

  2. I got this one about a year ago and have only recently started reading it also!

  3. I quite like the way leverages in the contextual historical detail without wandering off.
