230 pp "This richly illustrated volume focuses on the hundred years between 966 and 1066, tracing the cultural, dynastic and political background to this dramatic time. The story begins with a thematic evaluation of the Anglo-Danish conflicts of Ethelred's reign and the Danish supremacy of Cnut. The brief reigns of Cnut's own sons led to the improbable coronation in 1042 of Edward the Confessor. The core of the book discusses the politics and rivalries of his reign, suggesting that Edward himself was in large part responsible for the succession crisis of 1066.The claims of the principal candidates are considered, and the traumatic events of that year explored."
