Kathleen Herbert sifts through the royal genealogies, charms, verse and other sources to find clues to the names and attributes of the Gods and Goddesses of the early English. The earliest account of English heathen practices reveals that they worshipped the Earth Mother and called her Nerthus. The names Tiw, Woden, Thunor, and Frig have been preserved in place names and in the names given to days of the week. The tales, beliefs and traditions of that time are still with us and able to stir our minds and imaginations; they have played a part in giving us A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Lord of the Rings.

This work provides an introduction to England from the year 871 to 1074. The period starts with Alfred's reign and ends when England's last Anglo-Saxon king gave up his claim to Alfred's throne. It will serve as a much needed handy reference book for teachers and students but it has been written for the general reader who has an interest in the period but is not yet familiar with the academic works in which much of the detailed information about these two hundred years can be found. The first part contains brief descriptions of the political institutions, social and religious life, and language and literature. Most of the text is devoted to a reign by reign account of England's kings, their lives and families. The main features of each reign are described, and the major events are listed. Appendices provide details of the holders of major offices and summary accounts of the three great political events of the time; the unification of England, the Danish conquest of 1009-16 and the Norman conquest of 1066-71. A bibliography is provided for those who wish to explore the period in more detail, both of primary sources and modern academic studies in which the many debates that rage over interpreting the events of those times can be followed.

In The Sleeping Army, Freya went to Hel and back. She fought dragons, fled fire and outwitted giants - all to restore eternal youth to the Norse Gods. But now they're back, does anyone care? The Gods' popularity on earth is waning, and without regular worship, their powers are fading fast and their ancient enemies, the Frost Giants, are stirring. So the Gods hatch a plan - they'll come back down to earth, and they'll pursue a very different kind of popularity. They're going to become celebrities. A rollicking, thrilling and hilarious ride, The Lost Gods takes up where the Sleeping Army left off and takes us back to Simon's brilliantly-imagined modern Norse England.

In this extraordinary fantasy debut, a young assassin finds himself hunted by the brothers and sisters he has trained alongside since birth. Neythan is one of five young warriors trained and raised together by a mysterious brotherhood of assassins known as the Shedaím. When Neythan is framed for the murder of his closest friend, he pursues his betrayer – and in so doing learns there’s far more to the Brotherhood, and the machinations of the rulers of the warring kingdoms, than he’d ever thought possible. His journey will lead him across the five realms, from the Forest of Silences to the Ash Plains of Calapaar, and reveal the breaches that lie beneath the world, and the hidden truths of his oath.

AFTER AN ARCHAEOLOGIST BEGINS A COVETED DIG IN EGYPT, SHE UNEARTHS AN ANCIENT MYSTERY THAT UNITES HER WITH A LOST QUEEN . . . AND HER OWN DESTINY. Broiling in the stifling heat of the Valley of the Kings, an Egyptologist impatiently awaits official permission to unseal and dismantle the wall of a tomb that has escaped discovery for thirty-three centuries. She has been given the chance of a lifetime—to dig at a coveted site where radar scans have revealed two mysterious voids beneath the sands. As the sounds of digging echo through the valley, she wonders if it is possible that long awaited answers to ancient mysteries lie just beneath the tarmac where thousands of oblivious tourists walk every day. She is about to find out. Thirteen years earlier, a royal princess asked her family to help her in a great deception. She had no idea what the future held, but there was no turning back once the course was set. Now as Egyptologists from around the world converge on Cairo, they are unaware that destiny has chosen one lost queen to find another. THE LOST QUEEN OF ENGLAND is a compelling tale that weaves its way through ancient palaces, sails up the Nile, and flies across the desert in a golden chariot, ultimately leading to a captivating conclusion.

English history is patterned with spirits so bright that they broke through convention and saw another England. Such was the case of the Dorset poet, William Barnes (1801-86), priest, poet, teacher, self-taught polymath, linguist extraordinary and that rare thing - a man of vision. In this work the author looks at that vision, a vision at once of Religion, Nature, Art, Marriage, Society, Economics, Politics and Language. He writes: 'In search of authentic English roots and values, our post-industrial society may well have much to learn from Barnes' surprisingly relevant pre-industrial values and vision, for his programme is ultimately 'The Rebirth of England and English'. For the first time Saxon-English words created and used by Barnes in Early England and the Saxon-English, An Outline by English Speech-Craft, An Outline of Rede-Craft, and other books, have been gathered together and listed next to their foreign equivalents.
