Michael Wood illuminates the Dark Ages – the fascinating and mysterious centuries between the Romans and the Norman Conquest of 1066. From Hadrian, a Libyan refugee from the Arab conquests (and arguably the most important person of African origin in British history), to Queen Boadicea, to the Saxon, Viking and Norman Kings who laid the political foundations of England – Wood argues that as shadowy and brutal as the era was, it was also a richly exciting and formative period in the history of Britain.
