This volume is an in-depth edition, translation and commentary on the chronicle formerly known as "The Annals of St Neots", whose author is now identified by Dr. Hart as Byrhtferth, the schoolmaster of Ramsey Abbey in the late tenth century. The work covers a wide range of early English, Carolingian and Norman history, with repercussions on our interpretation of many original sources of the period. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
