Review

"A triumph. The most gripping portrait of 7th-Century Britain that I have read... A Game of Thrones in the Dark Ages." --Tom Holland, the Times

"The author has an engaging way with words, you feel personally guided in the quest." --Newcastle Chronicle

"A superb biography... a wonderfully vivid portrayal of early medieval England." --the Hexham Courant

Product Description

'A triumph – a Game of Thrones in the Dark Ages' TOM HOLLAND.

The magisterial biography of Oswald Whiteblade, exiled prince of Northumbria, who returned in blood and glory to reclaim his birthright.

A charismatic leader, a warrior whose prowess in battle earned him the epithet Whiteblade, an exiled prince who returned to claim his birthright, the inspiration for Tolkein's Aragorn.

Oswald of Northumbria was the first great English monarch, yet today this legendary figure is all but forgotten. In this panoramic protrait of Dark Age Britain, archaeologist and biographer Max Adams returns the king in the North to his rightful place in history.
