Description
In July 2009 an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast made an astonishing find: 3500 pieces of bejeweled gold and silver artifacts, weapons, and armor dating back almost 1500 years, to an era when the Saxons, Angles, Celts, Picts, and Vikings battled for control of the British Isles. Some highlights of this collection—subsequently dubbed the "Staffordshire Hoard"—appear among the more than 200 color photographs in this book, which also features period illustrations and images of key archaeological sites. The author of The War That Killed Achilles uses themes from this story of spectacular treasure to explore the history of the Saxons in England, from the fall of Rome to the Battle of Hastings and the Norman Conquest. Along the way, Caroline Alexander discusses such British cultural milestones as the King Arthur legends, Beowulf, and the Domesday Book.
