To coincide with the British Library’s landmark exhibition, Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms (opening in October 2018), Michael Wood tells fascinating tales from our greatest manuscripts: Augustine of Canterbury and the coming of Christianity; Theodore of Tarsus; the golden age of Northumbria; Alcuin and Europe’s first Renaissance; Alfred and the Vikings; Ethelred and Emma; and the Norman Conquest: stories of men and women, kings and peasants, of the beginning of English literature and art, and the origins of England.

Historian and filmmaker Michael Wood is Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester. He is author of many best-selling books and well over 100 documentary films, among them The Story of England, “the most innovative history series ever on TV” (The Independent). He recently received the British Academy President’s Medal for his outreach work promoting the field of history.
