Rooted in the Soil

Rooted in the Soil

“Which is why the royal personage who was entombed in Plas Gogerddan in Ceredigion in Wales is so important because just like the ship burial of his ‘significant other’ overlooking the River Deben near Woodbridge in Suffolk, he, like his ancestors, are rooted in the soil of these islands and are markers of distinct cultures, unique customs and precious histories that shape and define who and what we are and what we may still become.”

I just recently finished The Anglo-Saxons: A History of the Beginnings of England (400-1066) by Dr. Marc Morris and I HIGHLY recommend it to anybody who wants a deeper understanding of this INTEGRAL period of history.

I re-read some chapters two or three times, it’s that good!
