Woden's Warriors
Warfare, Beliefs, Arms and Armour in Northern Europe during the 6-7th Centuries

Paul Mortimer


This book explores some of the ideas and resources used by warriors in Anglo-Saxon England and Northern Europe during the 6th and 7th centuries.

This was a time of great change following a period of migration. Warrior kings and their followers gave expression to their status and wealth through the creation of embellished war gear made with great craftsmanship and artistry. It was a time when traditional beliefs and power structures faced challenges from a centralised and powerful Church. In the turmoil of the time, traditional ideas about identity and belief were mingling with new Christian values.

The aim of this book is to provide a glimpse of what it was like to be part of a warrior society. The author looks in detail at the weapons and armour used, and the attitudes and beliefs that inspired the warriors and shaped their societies.
