Medieval Life of King Alfred the Great, Hardback (November 2001)
This is a translation by Alfred Smyth of the medieval "Life" of King Alfred. He argues that the "Life" is a forgery which has profound implications not only for our understanding of the early English and medieval past but also for the nature of biography and history.
Medieval Europeans, Paperback (June 1998)
Examines the origins of European ethnic groups which subsequently developed into the nations of Europe. This book looks at evidence for the existence of an ethnic consciousness among the dominant European groups; this later formed the basis of nation states.
