'Enthralling... riveting, brilliantly written'
Editor's Choice, Bookseller
'Imaginatively constructed within a story of love and hate, war and peace, Christianity and paganism, scientific insights and intuitive guesswork, the authors paint a vivid picture of the wider world surrounding northern England some thirteen hundred years ago'
Ian Ralston, Abercromby Professor of Archaeology
'It is said that the dead cannot speak: Albert and Gething prove that wrong in this masterly tale of investigation, heroism and discovery that follows from the discovery of the bones of one man near the coast of Northumbria. With the aid of meticulous research and the latest scientific and archaeological advances this book brings together flawed archaeologists, traitorous kings and political saints into one accessible tale. Albert and Gething are a great team, throwing a startling new light on the so-called Dark Ages. A triumphant exploration of a time when the future of the British Isles was at stake.'
