Penda, Heathen King of Mercia: his Anglo Saxon world.


Penda was a dynamic character living in turbulent times. This is the first book dedicated to bringing the scarce references to him together, and providing some balanced investigation into this 7th century enigma. Yes the battles, politics and dynastic struggles are there, but set against the context of the general Anglo Saxon customs of food, dress, slavery, art and competing religions.
Some illustrations & useful timeline appendix.
