Description - The Danelaw by Cyril Hart
The Danelaw brings together an impressive body of work. Cyril Hart deals with both the main outline of the Danelaw, its administration and institutions, and its detail: the origin and development of particular provinces, boroughs, sokes and wapentakes; Danelaw charters and wills; battles, including Maldon seen in terms of topography; families, such as that of Athelstan 'Half King'; and individuals including Hereward the Wake, rescued from Victorian Romanticism and put on as sound a historical basis as the evidence will permit.
