THE FOLIO SOCIETY
Book covers for the The Anglo-Saxons books
The Anglo-Saxons’ book is one of the most important and influential general overviews of Anglo-Saxon history written to date. James Campbell’s account of six hundred years of power struggles, blood-feuds, conquest and gold hoards is now vividly portrayed by Folio with full-colour photographs.
A new introduction by British Museum curator Gareth Williams adds a fascinating addendum of the latest archaeological discoveries and illustrator Yann Legendre acknowledges the Anglo-Saxon love of gold in his striking blocked binding designs – one based on a replica of the Sutton Hoo helmet and the other on the Great Gold Buckle.
