Guest Post – ‘Unlucky Usurpers and Proud Tyrants’

I have written a guest post over at English Historical Fiction Authors called ‘Unlucky Usurpers and Proud Tyrants: The Leadership of Fifth Century Britain’. I’m very pleased that they agreed to have me as they run a fascinating site well worth a look for anybody interested English history of all periods.

The post explores the political background to my novels about Hengest and Horsa and I used the map from the second book in the trilogy in the blog post.

A rough idea of how the four provinces of Britain (created by the Diocletian Reforms) looked in the 5th century. Their arrangement is still a matter of debate.
