A step back in time to the days when reality mingles with legend, when Christianity is replacing the old gods, when death comes on the silent wings of plague. England is in the throes of many changes as plague and a new religion are sweeping the land and there are wars breaking out at every turn. Life is cheap and death comes from many directions as tribe wars against tribe, king against king and religion against religion following the fall of Roman power. Starvation and poor harvests take their toll on man and beast alike. Gueith Camlann is a mix of childhood recollected, legends, battles recalled and the clash of the old ways against the new as we follow Bryne and Maelgwn from the places of their boyhood into war where they serve a king. A history of turbulent times in England that will be a learning experience for any reader. Recommended for history buffs as a satisfying adventure through exciting and fearsome times following the fall of Rome and the rise of Christianity as told by the very talented Thomas Brown.
