Here is a History Book, that reads like a story. It's style allows you to actually learn the history of the Normans, from the vantage point of the 1066 invasion of England. This follow-on book to "Early Britain" is very readable. The Normans (North-Men) derived from the Vikings. ? "The more that we know of the Northmen, the more we are convinced how superior they were in their knowledge of the useful arts to the people whom they conquered. There is a legend that when Charlemagne, in the ninth century, saw some pirate ships cruising in the Mediterranean, along the shores of which they had at last found their way, he covered his face and burst into tears. He was not so much afraid of their cruelty and barbarism as of their civilization. Nobody knew better that none of the Christian countries under his rule had ships or men that could make such a daring voyage. He knew that they were skilful workers in wood and iron, and had learned to be rope-makers and weavers; that they could make casks for their supply of drinking-water, and understood how to prepare food for their long cruises. All their swords and spears and bow-strings had to be made and kept in good condition, and sheltered from the sea-spray." ? This illustrated eBook edition of the 1886 original has been carefully edited for scanning and spelling errors, and is as true to the original as possible. Those who complain that OCR creates errors simply have not taken the time to read and edit every word as we have. [EDB Pubs]
