We were both much more civilised than much of the rest of Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries. Indeed, it was Bede's chronicles, written in Jarrow, that ended the Dark Ages. Everyone associates Jarrow with the eponymous March. It's hard to fathom just how big the schism was between Rome and the Celtic monasticism of Ireland, Scotland and Northern England.
Here are the Venerable Bede and his contemporarie You didn't expect to see this on my shelves, eh? Here are the Venerable Bede and his contemporaries writing the stories of their time. Wonderful, wonderful tales on some of which a nation was founded. One day I shall base some fiction on these. Nov 18, Salvatore rated it liked it. Bede is on his own level with storytelling and detail in comparison to the other authors collected here. Also it's amusing how sassy people even were in 6th and 7th century England.
Glad to have rediscovered this on my bookshelf. It also makes me wonder if someone could write a short story that echoes this type of writing.
