              Author: Mark HarrisonIllustrator: Gerry EmbletonAbout this bookThe collapse of Roman rule in Britain was not so much a sudden catastrophe as a long and drawn-out decline.

Control of the fertile eastern lowlands was lost to warriors of Germanic origin who migrated from the Continent. These Germanic conquerors have become known to history as the 'Anglo-Saxons'. They were to dominate...

Letters to Governor Wise betrayed the mixed feelings people held for Brown. For some, he was simply insane and should not be hanged. For others, he was a martyr to the cause of abolition, and his quick trial...
