The Anglo-Saxons are coming! Summary

The Anglo-Saxons are coming! by Paul Mason

The fierce Anglo-Saxons are coming!

Invaders and Raiders: Anglo-Saxons describes how the Anglo-Saxons invaded and conquered much of Britain. Anglo-Saxon ships, raids and fighting style are all explored, alongside their beliefs and ways of life, to build up a true picture of these famous invaders. The book concludes with a look at the Anglo-Saxons' legacy in Britain today.

Illustrated with a mix of illustrations and found objects, each book in the series describes a famous civilisation, its customs and organisations, how it began and expanded, and its eventual decline.

About Paul Mason

Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming, cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
