Peace-Weavers and Shield-Maidens – Kathleen Herbert


The recorded history of the English people did not start in 1066 as popularly believed – but one thousand years earlier in the year AD98 when the English (Latin Anglii) lived in the southern part of the Jutland Peninsula. The author has taken that as an appropriate opening to an account of the earliest Englishwomen, the part they played in the making of England, what they did in peace and war, the impressions they left in Britain and on the continent, how they were recorded in the chronicles, and they come alive in heroic verse and jokes.
