Saxon, Viking and Norman/Terence Wise, Gerry Embleton. Osprey Men at Arms Series. Softcover. First edition 1984. Out of print. Condition: Very good. ISBN 0850453011
This absorbing and readable book explores the history, organization, clothing, equipment and weapons of Saxon, Viking and Norman peoples, illustrating yet again how they were a good deal more advanced than some writings would have us believe. Covering such wide-ranging topics as Anglo-Saxon shields, Viking raiding ships and the organization of Norman armies, the well researched text is supported by numerous illustrations and museum photographs, together with eight superbly drawn full page colour plates.
