Northumbria, 500-1100: Creation and Destruction of a Kingdom
Cambridge University Press, 25 sept. 2003 - 339 pages
This book deals with the rise and fall of the kingdom of Northumbria, set in a wider European context. It examines the mechanisms of ethnic, political, social and religious change which, beginning after the end of the Roman Empire, welded the large and disparate area between the Humber and the Firth of Forth into one of the most powerful kingdoms of early medieval England, and thos which led to its disintegration and its replacement by political structures of northern England and southern Scotland.
