Reviews

NOMINATED FOR THE LONGMAN HISTORY TODAY PRIZE 2017 -- Longman History Today Prize History Today "This was an extraordinary period of English history, and there is a widening gap between academic writing about it and the general reader. Levi Roach has written a book that at least tries to bridge the gap... he is very good at extracting from the dry bones of charters, witness lists, land grants and coinage types, a compelling and impressive picture of what was going on at the court of Aethelred."-David Crane, Spectator -- David Crane Spectator "Roach's task in rehabilitating a king whose reign ended in foreign conquest is trickier, but he successfully steers us to a real appreciation of how faith, martial prowess, a sometimes impulsive personality and the huge challenges of the Viking invasions interacted to place almost impossible constraints on Aethelred... welcome additions to the corpus of works on an unjustifiably neglected era of English history."-Philip Parker, Literary Review, February 2017 -- Philip Parker Literary Review "This detailed yet readable history does allow us to re-evaluate a misunderstood figure whose long reign occupied a nightmare of our island story... Levi Roach has written a well-considered, academically rigorous account of a fascinating, brutal and often neglected period in English history."-David Miles, Minerva -- David Miles Minerva
