Medieval Life of King Alfred the Great by Alfred P. Smyth 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 by Alfred P. Smyth Medieval Europeans, Hardback (June 1998)

A collection of essays, in which the authors look at evidence for the existence of an ethnic consciousness amongst the dominant ethnic groups in medieval Europe which would subsequently form the basis for the nation states of Europe.

King Alfred the Great by Alfred P. Smyth King Alfred the Great, Hardback (November 1995)

Soldier, statesman and scholar, Alfred the Great is celebrated as one of Britain's most successful and heroic kings. This biography reveals the controversial fact that Asser's "Life of Alfred", hitherto an important source of knowledge about Alfred, may have been a late medieval forgery.
