Description
Information
In March 1016 Earl Uhtred of Northumbria was ambushed and brutally murdered by a rival magnate - with full collusion of England's ruthless new ruler, King Canute - setting in motion a sixty-year cycle of violence, treachery, slaughter and revenge.

In this gripping work of historical detection, Richard Fletcher sheds new light on the fledgling Anglo-Saxon world, and on legendary figures such as Ethelred the Unready, Eric Bloodaxe and William the Conqueror, bringing one of the most bloodthirsty periods of English history to life.
