Peace-Weavers and Shield-Maidens
The recorded history of the English people did not start in 1066 as popularly believed but one-thousand years earlier. The Roman historian Cornelius Tacitus noted in Germania, published in the year 98 AD, that the English (Latin Anglii), who lived in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula, were members of an alliance of Goddess-worshippers.
The author has taken that as an appropriate opening to an account of the earliest Englishwomen, the part they played in the making of England, what they did in peace and war, the impressions they left in Britain and on the continent, how they were recorded in the chronicles, how they come alive in heroic verse and riddles.
