Warriors, Warlords and Saints:
The Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia
Special reader offer
Uncovering the kingdom of Mercia

For many years the story of Mercia - once the dominant power of Anglo Saxon England - has been shrouded in myth and mystery.

But new discoveries shine a light of this mysterious kingdom - home to King Offa and Aethelflaed, the lady of the Mercians.

In this beautifully illustrated book with 85 full colour images and maps, well-known historian, John Hunt, explores the story of Mercia revealing how it became so powerful; its conflicts with other kingdoms; the stories of its monarchs and warriors; and its central role in the conversion of England to Christianity.
