122 pp, 8 1/8" H. "(G)athers together eight stories of Anglo-Saxon times, that little-known period of six hundred years between the time the Romans left England after their long occupation and the Norman Conquest of 1066. These were the Dark Ages, when raiders from the north overran the shifting kingdoms, when paganism and Christianity strove for the mastery of men's minds; a time of violence and chaos, a black time pierced by shafts of heroism, vision, beauty. 'Many famous people lived and died in that time,' say the authors, 'and countless thousands of ordinary ones; these stories are about a few of them'." Contents: The Woodwose; Caedmon; Asser's Book; Leof's Leavetaking; The Horseman; The Childmaster; Thurkell the Tall; The Eye of the Hurricane. Minor edge soiling on boards, faint dampness mark on rear board. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has area of color offset on inside of rear panel from board, light edge browning, very light edge wrinkling, 1" light scuff line on front panel.
