Four Anglian Kings of Northumbria: Or Four Yorkshire Anglo-Saxon Crowns
The purpose of this little book is to give an insight to those who have an interest in the formation of England during the Dark-Ages, mainly the northern part of which we call Yorkshire, although other parts of England are mentioned in the narrative. Indeed, my own name is prominent into this insight, but I hope for it to be a leader into further readings about Anglo-Saxon history. However, because of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Old-Norse (Viking) artworks, we should refer to this dark period in our history as the Golden-Age.
We only have to look at the survival of illuminated manuscripts and gospels, many of them written by Christians, e.g. monks etc. If it had not been for their learnings, because of the coming of Christianity into our land, most of what we know of our early history would never have been passed on. Archaeological excavations however, do show us that history is actually a slow fusion from one society into another. But, writers on history need to give set categories to certain groups of people that lived long ago, so to distinguish periods of time, areas and peoples from one another. Then we can relate to what we know as history.
