Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Mercia, then pay attention...

The Kingdom of Mercia lasted for more than 500 years. Such a long period of time brought change to all aspects of Mercian life, and it is the role of history and this audiobook to follow that change through the centuries. But it wasn’t just the kings and queens that changed. The events of the period resonated within social and cultural life, religious beliefs, artistic expression, and trade. Everything evolved under the patronage of Mercia.

We are able to understand these changes as they are still ongoing in modern times. The world we are living in is constantly shifting and developing, and as people, we are no different than the Anglo-Saxons from the old times. As such, it is no wonder we show interest in their way of life and the persons who ruled them. In fact, it is almost as if we feel a deep connection with the society of our ancestors, as if we feel there is some familiarity. The distance that separates our time from theirs is what makes this familiarity even more interesting.

In Mercia: A Captivating Guide to an Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of England and the Invasions of the Vikings during the 9th Century, you will discover topics such as:

  • The Origins of Mercia
  • The Builders of Mercia
  • A New Dynasty
  • Court, Church, Country, and the People
  • The Vikings Are Coming
  • The Rise of Wessex
  • The Last Queen of Mercia
  • Mercia the Earldom
  • And much, much more!

So if you want to learn more about Mercia, buy this audiobook now!

Content is fascinating, but delivery was poor.

The subject matter saved this book really as it is written like a wikipedia page. It is somewhat hard to absorb let alone enjoy a three and a half hour long list of facts. I felt like very little thought was put into stitching the narrative of this together. Moreover, the reader sounds like a computer generated voice/sat-nav; quite monotonous and mispronouncing place names etc.
