The Century of Calamity

England in the Long Eleventh Century

TD Asch

Covering the period from Æthelræd’s accession in 978 to the death of William the Conqueror in 1087, this is a tale of national emergencies and lost causes, of cowardice, bravery and treachery. Asch focuses on the men whose failures brought about the fall of England, culminating in Harold Godwinson’s betrayal of his wife and brother, which was to change the life of his country forever.
