Description

Max Adams explores Britain's lost early medieval past by walking its paths and exploring its lasting imprint on valley, hill and field. From York to Whitby, from London to Sutton Hoo, from Edinburgh to Anglesey and from Hadrian's Wall to Loch Tay, each of his ten walk narratives form a portrait of a Britain of fort and fyrd, crypt and crannog, church and causeway, holy well and memorial stone.

Professional reviews

"Part travelogue, part expert reconstruction, In the Land of Giants offers a beautifully written insight into an enigmatic period of Britain’s history. ‘A triumph. The most gripping portrait of 7th-Century Britain that I have read… A Game of Thrones in the Dark Ages.’ THE TIMES on The King in the North ‘An engagingly populist and evocative book that makes a bold and effective attempt to bring a particularly obscure period in northern British history to the general reader.’ LITERARY REVIEW on The King in the North"
