"Carefully pitched, this is well-written - and fun. Challenging and stimulating, it encourages understanding and evaluation, skill and knowledge building, with plenty of time for sheer enjoyment!" Anni Cole-Hamilton, Moray Firth School "This marvellous book can be used to complete the narrative of what happened in Britain and Europe after the Greeks and the Romans, or else on its own as an early history of the British Isles. It is presented in a vivid and interesting way and brings the period fromm 55BC to 1066 to life." Niall Murphy, Radley College "I love the way the books are chronological - such a rare thing and makes so much more sense than the way the National Curriculum does history." Caroline Hampton, Home Educator
