Product Description

At the turn of the first millennium, the Vikings swept through Anglo-Saxon England, fierce, unexpected and unstoppable. Plundering not only monasteries and cathedrals, but the very underpinnings of a fragile culture, they ran unchecked by military might and a church in decline - until three centuries later, when King Alfred arose to unite the Anglo-Saxon empire. Under his reign, the marauders were quelled, a new age of learning came to England and through the influence of one of their own chieftains, King Canute, many Vikings were converted to Christianity and to English laws and ways. Here is a fascinating look at England's mysterious Viking era - a colorful and evocative time of Dark-Ages fear, fighting faith, and cloak-and-dagger subterfuge; an age when warriors were sanctified, kings were martyred and barbarian overlords were humbled before the cross of Christ. Rich in imagery, this book will stir the imagination and inform both the head and the heart.

Publisher's Description

An engaging and popular account of the mysterious Dark Age of English history when Vikings and Anglo-Saxons collided--and faith won out At the turn of the first millennium, Viking raiders devastated Anglo-Saxon England, looting monasteries and cathedrals and destroying much of the fragile culture. Yet pressure from the invaders caused the Anglo-Saxon nations to unite and grow strong under King Alfred, resulting in the conversion of many Viking marauders. Learning flourished and, even when fully conquered, Anglo-Saxons found themselves protected as part of a Christian Viking empire. Author and historian Paul Cavill tells the enthralling story of how King Alfred and his successors tamed and integrated the Vikings into the Anglo-Saxon way of life.
