Earliest English Kings

David Kirby "Earliest English Kings"
Routledge | 2000-11-07 | ISBN: 0415242118 | 256 pages | PDF | 1,4 MB


The Earliest English Kings is a sweeping and thorough overview of Anglo-Saxon History from the sixth century to the eighth century and the death of King Alfred. Kirby explains and explores the 'Heptarchy' or the seven kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England, as well as the various peoples within them, wars, religion, King Offa, and the coming of the Vikings.

In this completely revidsed edition, the author brings this classic book up to date to reflect on current findings on this line of rulers. With maps and family trees, this book reveals the complex, distant and tumultuous events of Anglo-Saxon politics.

David Kriby held a personal chair in History at the University of Whales, Aberystwyth and is now retired. He is the author of The Making of Early England and is co-author of A Bibliographical Dictionary of Dark Age Britain
