This is a great book, one that I cannot say enough about. The author does a great job of bringing Dark Age Britain to life, and explaining how it worked. If you are interested in this fascinating time and place, then you simply MUST read this book. It’s great!
I would actually recommend this work over most "Heathen" focused works.Though Evans doesnt really touch on Heroic age religion he spells out the ACTUAL culture of the ruling elite of the time.By understanding their social norms and everyday concepts one gets a much broader understanding of Heathen religious rites.
