`I hope I may live long enough to witness the rediscovery of another royal body - this time also the relics of a saint! Francis Young's well-researched book looks for the real man behind the legendary martyred East Anglian king. The author's enthusiasm for his subject, and for the quest to find the mortal remains of St. Edmund, everywhere shines through. Authoritative and reliable, this volume is at the same time an enjoyable and engaging read.' - John Ashdown-Hill, MBE, Honorary Senior Lecturer in History, University of Essex and Leader of Genealogical Research and Historical Adviser, `Looking for Richard' Project, `Simultaneously a sophisticated work of history, a compelling detective story and a moving meditation on what it is to be English, this is a fascinating and wonderful book.' - Tom Holland, author of Athelstan: The Making of England and of Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom, `Brilliantly charting the history of Edmund's cult from earliest days to the present day, Francis Young shows how the East Anglian martyr-king has been central to English identity from the very start. He writes with a keen eye to present political developments, convincingly arguing that Edmund is more relevant now than ever.' - Levi Roach, Lecturer in Medieval History, University of Exeter, author of AEthelred: The Unready
