Saints & Sinners in Dark Age England
Five tales to take you from the misty years following the collapse of Roman rule in England, a time when it is hard to distinguish between history, myth and legend, through until the arrival of the Normans when, after over 600 years of almost constant chaos, some semblance of stability returned to English life. These are tales of murder, mayhem, treason, torture, incest and adultery in which we’ll encounter nine saints, eight English kings who met gruesome, bloody premature deaths, five scheming English queens who put the 'sex' into Wessex, and the mother of all wicked stepmothers.
