This survey of medieval Britain presents the events comprising the two great invasions from Continental Europe as a coherent narrative Unique both for its broad historical perspective and for its wide geographic coverage Edward James all encompassing history spans the long millennium from the first century BC through the Norman Conquest and covers events across the whole of Britain from Cornwall to the Shetlands providing the European context for events in England while also examining the many ways Britain differed from the rest of Europe Students of medieval Europe will find his book an invaluable synthesis, No description available, Science fiction is at the intersection of numerous fields It is literature which draws on popular culture and engages in speculation about science history and all varieties of social relations This volume brings together essays by scholars and practitioners of science fiction which look at the genre from different angles It examines science fiction from Thomas More to the present day and introduces important critical approaches including Marxism postmodernism feminism and queer theory, Barbarians is the name the Romans gave to those who lived beyond the frontiers of the Roman Empire the peoples they considered uncivilised Most of the written sources concerning the barbarians come from the Romans too and as such need to be treated with caution Only archaeology allows us to see beyond Roman prejudices and yet these records are often as difficult to interpret as historical ones br br Expertly guiding the reader through such historiographical complexities Edward James traces the history of the barbarians from the height of Roman power through to AD by which time they had settled in most parts of imperial territory in Europe His book is the first to look at all Europe s barbarians the Picts and the Scots in the far north west the Franks Goths and Slavic speaking peoples and relative newcomers such as the Huns and Alans from the Asiatic steppes br br How did whole barbarian peoples migrate across Europe What were their relations with the Romans And why did they convert to Christianity Drawing on the latest scholarly research this book rejects easy generalisations to provide a clear nuanced and comprehensive account of the barbarians and the tumultuous period they lived through
