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.
