This book is about its conquerors, from Ancient Briton to Norman knight: how they fought and won the land, brought new ideas, and settled Britain, island of the west.The islands history is told in succession of beautifully illustrated chapters- the book can be opened at any point, as each pair of facing pages is a self-contained unit.

The main text, in large type , traces the important personalities and features of the period - from Boadicea to the Domesday Book.In addition, each chapter contains interesting background information - details of the invaders religions, their art, agriculture and trade, the houses they lived in, and the pastimes they enjoyed.All are richly illustrated with drawings, photographs, reproductions from contemporary prints and manuscripts, and maps - many in full colour - and there is a wealth of information in the caption alone.

The Battle of Hastings, for instance, is described with the aid of a model of the battle-field, a colour photograph of teh site, and section of the Bayeux Tapestry.
