Negotiating the bias in surviving sources about the kingdom of Mercia –  as most written evidence was lost during Viking aggression and other material comes mainly from enemies of the Mercians – Annie Whitehead presents a history of the kingdom of middle England. Beginning with Penda in the 7th century, the book describes the reigns of Aethelbald, Offa the Great, Burgred and Ceolwulf II, Aethelred of Mercia and Lady Aethelflaed, and rulers of the house of Leofric up to the early 11th century.
