Becky Bookworm Book Review: Viking Age England by Dr Julian Richards

Viking Age EnglandViking Age England by Julian D. Richards

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Overall this book is a very interesting read and does make the reader aware of a lot of important and influental factors affecting not just the Anglo-Saxon people at the time period its writen about but also the factors that influenced many of the Norwegian and Danish viking settlers and their lives since the founding of the Danelaw.

It is rather dry in its tone though, it isn't as informal or as enthusiastic than some other factual books on the middle ages and viking era I have but it did prove to be interesting and a worthwhile read if you want a deeper insight into this time period.
