          Author: Mark HarrisonIllustrator: Gerry EmbletonAbout this bookThe collapse of Roman rule in Britain was not so much a sudden catastrophe as a long and drawn-out decline.

Control of the fertile eastern lowlands was lost to warriors of Germanic origin who migrated from the Continent. These Germanic conquerors have become known to history as the 'Anglo-Saxons'. They were to dominate...

              About this Osprey Publishing BookThe Harpers Ferry raid confirmed for many Southerners the existence of a widespread Northern plot against slavery.
