Item description for Anglo Saxon Britain by Grant Allen...

Grant Allen's Anglo Saxon Britain is a description of Britain under the early English conquerors from the social rather than from the political point of view by a distinguished historian. It traces the history of the Anglo Saxons from their ruthless extinction of the vestiges of Roman rule through the Christianization of the heathen tribes and their consolidation into a single culture with its own unique literature and art.

The early history of the settlement Britain through successive waves of Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes and others had a profound effect on the social fabric of the civilization they wrought. Allen's principal object has been to estimate the importance of those elements in modern British life which are chiefly due to purely English or Low-Dutch influences.

The original authorities most largely consulted have been the English Chronicle, and Bda's Ecclesiastical History. These have been supplemented by Florence of Worcester and the other authoritative Latin writers of later date. The net result is a scholarly and fascinating examination of the historical synthesis of the British character.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anglo Saxon Britain?

Big Lessons in a Small Book  Apr 11, 2007

Here is the book that makes the classics like Beowulf and The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle come alive. It gives the reader an inside look at the real conditions and circumstances behind the people of early Britain.

Anglo Saxon Britain provides a look at a side of the Anglo Saxon heritage of Britain that isn't found in other works. Through its descriptions and explanations, the reader gets to see a side of life, at an important time in history, that few books on history even attempt to deal with. The lives of the ordinary people of Britain were impacted in extraordinary ways by the migrations of the various tribal groups, more so than by many of the so-called important political events.

Although the conventional explanations of the flow of history, from the top-down perspectives are important, Grant Allen gives numerous examples of how the history of early Britain was more accurately a matter of the cumulative effects of population pressure - the wants and needs of the common people - that were the real driving forces behind the changes.

This book contains material that is important for anyone with an interest in real history - not the usual trivial gossip about famous names - but the real conditions and events that shaped the world. In this regard not only historians but many others will find a treasure trove of important concepts in this exceptional book.
