:D Very funny. What a great idea for a book, I'm jealous I did not think of it. That's a rip-off of the archaeologist Schliemann's wife wearing the treasure he dug up at Hisarlik in Turkey - Troy.

This sounds very interesting. Of course the conflict can't have been delineated neatly between Brtons and Saxons....so Britons would have been fighting each other.I have to agree with people above who wrote we should combine the written sources and the archeological evidence to be able to make sense of this complicated and fascinating time.
Jules, I have already mailed you, since I would love to read the entire article. Does anybody have any tips for books about this period?

Ken Dark's book Britain and the End of the Roman Empire covers the fifth and sixth centuries in some depth and is very readable. Bear in mind that there are as many opinions as there are experts!
