    I ve intended to read this for some time now, but the Bernard Cornwell books kind of chivvied me on a bit Why oh why oh why isn t this stuff taught in schools It s absolutely fascinating I had no idea William the Conqueror was such a tyrant Of course, everything about Alfred is fascinating, but all of it was so interesting Can feel a letter to Michael Gove coming on

    I borrowed a friend s card to the Cal State Fullerton Library to check out three volumes at a time of the 14 volume set The books were kept on one of the top floors, and they were old and smelled like moldmmm, my favorite book smell I can t believe that now the condensed set can be ordered in paperback It took me several months to read the meticulous writing of ancient monks, translated from Old English and I learned so much about how the world was viewed by these scholarly men of the 9t I borrowed a friend s card to the Cal State Fullerton Library to check out three volumes at a time of the 14 volume set The books were kept on one of the top floors, and they were old and smelled like moldmmm, my favorite book smell I can t believe that now the condensed set can be ordered in paperback It took me several months to read the meticulous writing of ancient monks, translated from Old English and I learned so much about how the world was viewed by these scholarly men of the 9th century I was amazed that they wrote of how dragons swept across the sky and left drought and famine in their wake, burning fields etc One of the books told of how Jesus, while still a child, lived in a cave with Joseph and Mary during their escape from Jerusalem Jesus and another child argued and Jesus struck him dead His parents explained how this wasn t a very child of Godish thing to do, so Jesus brought him back to life I got a kick out of that one I m glad I read these books, but I was also glad to be done with them

    I trudged through this for awhile There are things I find incredibly interesting and that are so helpful for contextualization, but for just sitting down and reading, bits like the lists of bishops deaths can get a bit frustrating However, there are some real jewels in the entries, like the fiery dragons in the sky, the founding naming of towns, or the extensive description of medieval torture that stood out to me I like how the king s ancestry is traced at first to Woden, then eventually to I trudged through this for awhile There are things I find incredibly interesting and that are so helpful for contextualization, but for just sitting down and reading, bits like the lists of bishops deaths can get a bit frustrating However, there are some real jewels in the entries, like the fiery dragons in the sky, the founding naming of towns, or the extensive description of medieval torture that stood out to me I like how the king s ancestry is traced at first to Woden, then eventually to Adam interesting mixing of religions there I think before reading this it s worth getting a foundation in Anglo Saxon history from modern scholars, and also looking things up as you read Whenever something intrigued me or I felt I was having difficulty connecting events, it helped to just look them up Also,I think it goes without saying that this is a must read for Anglo Saxon scholars

    Once you have even a passing knowledge of the Anglo Saxons, you ll probably want to read through the Chronicle Whitelock s translation features side by side versions of each manuscript when sources differ.

    Not the easiest of reads, a list of events year by year which can go past too fast blink and you miss something of huge significance But a truly interesting read

    I hate having to give bad reviews With 4 different versions of the same events to go over in one book, you d think whoever put it together would have puteffort into the layout Not so The entire reason this is getting 3 stars is due to this The content is interesting enough to warrant 4 5 stars However, the narrative swaps between various accounts without proper set up or any distinct reasoning behind it You ll get a few years worth of one, then a few of another, then two years of the I hate having to give bad reviews With 4 different versions of the same events to go over in one book, you d think whoever put it together would have puteffort into the layout Not so The entire reason this is getting 3 stars is due to this The content is interesting enough to warrant 4 5 stars However, the narrative swaps between various accounts without proper set up or any distinct reasoning behind it You ll get a few years worth of one, then a few of another, then two years of the third and so on Entries stop mid sentence and continue pages later, and while it s all noted as you go, it doesn t make it any less of a chore to get through.Maybe this works for academics I m not one, I read this purely out of interest in the subject matter, and unfortunately find myself frustrated at how inaccessible it was

    Fascinating review of 1,000 years of English history fromor less primary contemporary accounts I was particularly intrigued by the super natural observations such as two moons in the sky, pools welling up blood, comets with tails that changed directions, etc.

    The intro was as confusing as the chronicles themselves, but I enjoyed it immensely.
