Publisher's Summary

The magisterial biography of Oswald Whiteblade, exiled prince of Northumbria, who returned in blood and glory to reclaim his birthright.

A charismatic leader, a warrior whose prowess in battle earned him the epithet Whiteblade, an exiled prince who returned to claim his birthright, the inspiration for Tolkien's Aragorn.

Oswald of Northumbria was the first great English monarch, yet today this legendary figure is all but forgotten. In this panoramic protrait of Dark Age Britain, archaeologist and biographer Max Adams returns the king in the North to his rightful place in history.

Interesting.

I was thoroughly enjoying this book, until the background music, and sound effects, seemed to intrude all the time. I'm afraid I could not be bothered to continue what would, I am sure, be a really interesting book.
In spite of the above comments, the narrator is truly excellent.
