Oliver Creighton and Duncan Wright

  • The first ever archaeologically based study of the 'Anarchy' of King Stephen's reign
  • Explores a notoriously violent and turbulent period of the English medieval past

  • Draws upon a body of new research, including extensive archaeological surveys on sites around Britain
