Title: The Origin of England
Author: Selina O'Grady
The Origin of England is a history of 10th century England, the century when the country was created both geographically and constitutionally. Central to the book is Dunstan, the man whose power forged together Church and State to create values and institutions that endure today. It was also a century filled with Viking wars, internecine battles and court intrigues. The lives of the peasantry and town dwellers changed irrevocably into an existence that is recognisably English, as villages and towns grew and the vast estates were divided up amongst a new generation of landowners.
