Summary

The Kings of the North

In an era of warfare, raiders and ruthless kings, northern England occupied a place on an international stage that placed it alongside the great powers of the continent. The kingdom of Northumbria dominated the north and under its Kings Edwin, Oswald, Ivar the Boneless and Eric Bloodaxe, it held primacy over Anglo-Viking Britain. Royal, secular and ecclesiastical patronage produced unrivalled cultural achievements in art, architecture, writing, and learning.
