Synopsis

Britain's Settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and Scots by Claire Throp

Britain's Settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and Scots is a fascinating account of British history from a period that begins when Roman rule ended in the 360s, through to 793, when the Vikings arrived and attacked Lindisfarne. The book describes the Scots invasions from Ireland to north Britain (now Scotland), the Anglo-Saxon invasions and settlements, and how their art, religion and daily life shaped British culture, including Christian conversion at Canterbury, Iona and Lindisfarne. Find out more about Vortigern, Bede and Cuthbert, and how the language of this time has survive in the current English language in this amazing history of early British life.
