The Lord of Westerlands and his blind Song-Sayer face death and destruction in a race against time to save their lands. As Told in the Great Hall | Most wargaming titles concentrate on the more popular periods of history such as the Napoleonic Wars and the Second World War. In this book, Martin Hackett brings his extensive wargaming experience and historical background to the Dark Ages, a period of history with much less coverage in wargaming terms.

    The Dark Ages were a tumultuous time. Roving horse-bound invaders charged the country sides. Religious conflicts arose; Muslims conquered lands. Scarcity of sound literature and cultural achievements marked these years; barbarous practices prevailed. Despite the religious conflicts, the period of the Dark Ages was seen as an age of faith.   This is the Blog for MORRIS BERMAN, the author of "Dark Ages America". It includes current publications and random thoughts about U.S. Foreign Policy, including letters and reactions to publications from others. A cultural historian and social critic, MORRIS BERMAN is the author of "Wandering God" and "The Twilight of American Culture".   The fascinating discovery is discussed in detail in the new book ‘The Lost Dark Age Kingdom of Rheged‘, released in 21st January, authored by Ronan Toolis at GUARD Archaeology in Glasgow and co-authored by Christopher Bowles, a Scottish borders council archaeologist. According to the authors, their findings have revealed structural ruins. Many of the Arthurian source sites concentrate on literature, fiction, and film.
